English - An Introduction

On this page you will find English Resources for teachers and pupils in primary education. Some of the sites listed below are a tremendous resource for English classes.

This is a resource for teachers, parents and of course the children that are involved with English in primary schools in County Kildare, Ireland.

All submissions and suggestions for this section of the site are most welcome.

The English curriculum is structured to offer children a total language experience.

It includes:

Oral Language activity includes encouraging Talk and Discussion, developing children's ability to use language socially, and stimulating their imagination.

Reading involves using a wide variety of texts. Children read for pleasure and information, they learn to locate and use books for a variety of purposes and develop higher comprehension skills.

Writing encourages children to write clearly and expressively. Children write for a variety of purposes, for different audiences and in a range of genres. Through drafting, editing and redrafting they develop the ability to self-correct their own writing. The conventions of grammar, spelling and punctuation are emphasised.
