Re-presenting the Primary School Curriculum: materials for teachers


Here you will find re-presented curriculum materials useful for planning.

These developmental materials re-present the curriculum content objectives in a more user friendly way. The re-presented curriculum materials are available for English, Gaeilge, Mathematics, Science and Physical Education. You will also find a curriculum overview wall-chart that presents the strands and strand units for all subjects.

NCCA would like to acknowledge the work of the Primary Curriculum Support Programme (PCSP) and the School Development Planning Support (SDPS) who developed similar resources for curriculum support in the past. These documents, developed by NCCA draw on the original work of the Primary Professional Development Service (PPDS) who designed and developed 'glance cards' which highlighted key curriculum content and the progression in objectives from infants to 6th class. We would like to thank them for their contribution to the early stages of our work in re-presenting the curriculum.
You can download the PPDS cards from the Content objectives 'at-a-glance page of their website.
