Primary Language Toolkit
The Primary Language Toolkit supports teachers in using the Learning Outcomes by providing practical support in planning for, and providing rich language learning experiences for children. The three components of the toolkit are described in the following section – Examples of Children’s Language Learning, Progression Continua and Support Materials for Teachers.
Cabhraíonn Uirlisí Úsáide Teanga na Bunscoile le múinteoirí agus iad ag úsáid na Torthaí Foghlama mar go dtugann siad tacaíocht phraiticiúil dóibh chun eispéiris foghlama teanga shaibhre a phleanáil agus a chur ar fáil do pháistí. Déantar cur síos sa chuid seo ar na trí chuid de na huirlisí úsáide – Samplaí d’Fhoghlaim Teanga na bPáistí, Contanaim Dul chun Cinn agus Ábhar Tacaíochta do Mhúinteoirí.
Developed with teachers, these Examples give insights into how teachers work with learning outcomes to make decisions about what they teach, the types of activities, experiences and pedagogies they use, and the information they gather on how well children are doing in their language learning.
Each example is accompanied by 'Support Information' which provides more detail on the school and classroom context, and the choices made by the teacher in preparing, teaching and assessing the children's learning. They also contain some reflective questions which you might find useful when thinking about your own practice.
The Progression Continua are available for download here. If you intend to print the Progression Continua we recommend that you print it in A3. You can access the online interactive version by filtering by school type and strand from the Primary Language Curriculum homepage.

Teacher-child interactions are at the heart of the work in schools supporting children’s language learning and development. The Support Materials presented here provide a range of research-based teaching strategies and methodologies to help children’s language development in both English (L1) and Irish (L2). Some of these materials focus on language concepts and skills specific to English or Irish, while others focus on concepts and skills that underpin both languages.
The Support Materials are organised in the table below according to the relevant strand or strands. You can access the full suite of materials by clicking the strand link at the top of each column or you can access each individual support material by following the title links.
