The aim of this course is to provide the teacher with ideas and strategies for linkage of themes across the Curriculum e.g.
Space / Rome and the Romans / The Rainforest / Polar Regions / 1916 Centenary / The Famine etc.
Bringing Aistear from Junior to senior classes will also be covered, showing how certain themes can be extended for all classes
leading to a whole-school approach to certain topics.
Resource packs that have been put together over time will be available for perusal. Samples of children's work, teachers
planning tools, use of I.C.T. and practical tips will be discussed and shared.
