Details about your purchase:
There are 2 fortnightly plans and 2 corresponding Aistear plans for for each month. For months where there are school holidays i.e. December, Easter, there is one 3 week plan and one 3 week Aistear plan. Each fortnightly plan is extremely detailed at approximately 35 pages per plan.
Each fortnightly plan covers English, Irish, maths, science, history, geography, music, drama, visual arts, SPHE and PE and where possible arts education and SESE are deliberately incorporated into the Aistear plans and through integration.
For each subject, the plan includes the curricular/ learning outcomes, learning objectives, learning activities, resources, assessment, integration, and differentiation.
This bundle includes a sample timetable for the each of the first 4 weeks of school for Junior Infants. The timetable shows how you might transition from the Junior Infants starting on a shorter day with a gradual increase each week to the full infant day over the course of the month.
The Gaeilge and English parts of the plans are based on the latest September 2019 version of the Primary Language Curriculum using my own highly rated PLC planning template.
The content of the plans are based on a mixture of my own ideas and research and from my own experience of what works well with infants. I have suggested resources for the lessons such as poems, songs and YouTube videos and have included the hyper-links to these in the plans. The plans are not based on any specific schemes apart from SPHE which does cover the Stay Safe, and Department of Education RSE programmes, as well as my own suggestions. The plans are fully editable Microsoft Word documents, and can be easily edited if you do want to follow a specific scheme.
The Aistear themes that are covered are:
- Myself and my family
- Myself and my house/ home
- Colours and shapes
- Christmas/ toys and games
- The dentist
- Chinese New Year
- The doctor
- The post office
- Spring – animals
- Spring – plants
- St. Patrick’s Day
- Environmental Awareness – Spring Clean Month
- The vet
- Day and night
- The jungle
The plans align to my Junior Infants long term plans which have been highly rated and are available to purchase here.
An enormous amount of time and effort was put into these plans and I am confident you will be very happy with your purchase. Positive reviews are very much appreciated.
