Primary Mathematics Curriculum Short Term Planning Template and Completed Sample


The Primary Mathematics Curriculum for Primary and Special Schools will be implemented from September 2024. All primary and special schools will be required to teach mathematics based on the Primary Mathematics Curriculum (PMC) and teachers’ long and short term recorded preparation will need to be based on the PMC.

This download includes a blank template that can be used for completing your short term recorded preparation for the new Primary Mathematics Curriculum. The template includes the sections recommended in the Department’s 2021 Preparation for Teaching and Learning Guidance for all Primary and Special Schools. This download also contains a sample of a completed plan for the Primary Mathematics Curriculum to demonstrate what information to include in each of the sections. The completed sample is based on content that could be covered with 2nd Class during the second fortnight in September, but the same template works for all classes from Junior Infants – 6th class.
