Here is a complete Dip Term 1 planning bundle for 1st and 2nd class. It contains all 11 curricular long-term (termly) plans and 15 weekly plans. These were used during Term 1 of my Dip (I completed my Dip during Term 1 and Term 2 of the 16/17 school year).
These plans follow the NIPT planning templates and guidelines and are comprehensive and very detailed.
It was noted during the Dip by the inspector that the plans were to a very high standard. The Gaeilge and English weekly plans from November onwards contain the Elements and Learning Outcomes for the Oral Language and Teanga ó Bhéal section of the New Language Curriculum.
You will also find a blank weekly template and a document containing spider diagrams for each week of term 1 outlining the theme for the week and general activities for each subject to correspond with the weekly plan.
For the completion of my plans I used a range of content both from my own ideas, the ideas of others that I have observed and interacted with and from various educational resources.
Some plans take cognisance of content outlined in the school plans and books used in the school however may not follow the publishers guide/outline as content was chosen to integrate best with theme being studied.
The main books used in the school that may be referred to in the plans were:
- English – Wonderland Scheme
- Gaeilge – Abair Liom
- Maths – Planet Maths
- SESE – Geography/History/Science Quest
- Music – The Right Note
- SPHE – Walk Tall and RSE
