English

The English curriculum is for children from junior infants to sixth class. The curriculum identifies the importance of language in the learning process.

The content is presented under three strands:

  • Oral Language
  • Reading
  • Writing.

Additional Support Material

The current curriculum was introduced as part of the Primary School Curriculum (1999). Additional Support Materials for English were published in 2005. A new integrated language curriculum for English and Irish is available for infants to second class and will be available for all other classes from 2018.
