As the children continue to progress through the Language Curriculum, they will further engage with both languages with layers of sophistication being applied.  The emphasis on fluency will be replaced with a greater emphasis on comprehension.  The Learning Support Team will continue to offer in class support through the Jolly Phonics Programme.

The children will continue to engage with the Cleití Programme and again this will be facilitated by the Class Teacher and the Learning Support team. 



You can help your child to learn at home by:

  • listening to your child and encouraging him/her to tell you more about different things that interest him/her, for example asking about a pastime or hobby.
  • reading with your child and asking questions to check understanding.
  • asking your child to tell you some new words/sentences he/she has learned at school.
  • watching programmes and cartoons on TG4 with your child.

The children will  engage with the New Primary Language Curriculum from September 2017. The Curriculum applies in all school contexts—English-medium schools, Gaeltacht schools, Irish-medium schools and special schools. The curriculum for junior and senior infants is aligned with the principles and methodologies of Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework. You can learn more about the New Language Curriculum by clicking on the image on the left.



You can help your child to learn at home by:

  • helping your child to break numbers into tens and units by setting out a number of objects like crayons or pencils and using elastic bands to group objects together.
  • encouraging your child to estimate by, for example asking him/her to guess how many steps are taken on a segment of a journey.
