  • Teachers looking for a single resource to support differentiated instruction in the classroom.
  • Parents who wish to support their children at home.

Ar Aghaidh Leat is a bilingual reference book designed specifically for teachers in primary schools or parents supporting their child in developing the Irish language in the home. It provides an invaluable compilation of vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, writing and presentation skills to support the delivery of the Primary Language Curriculum.  It was developed by an experienced primary school teacher with the aim of enabling teachers to plan Irish lessons that reflect the diversity of their students' language experience.

Ar Aghaidh Leat aims to consolidate aspects of the three strands of the New Primary Language Curriculum. Within these strands are elements that describe essential language learning: developing communicative relationships through language, understanding the content and structure of language, as well as exploring and using language.

Yvonne is a primary teacher and is passionate about the teaching of the Irish language. She has been teaching in Co. Tipperary for 15 years. Having tried various Irish programmes in her school she found she was still sourcing material to plan and teach Irish lessons on a weekly basis. Yvonne felt that there was no resource in the market with all the vocabulary and grammar in one place for teachers to reference from when delivering the Primary Language Curriculum.

During lockdown Yvonne compiled all the vocabulary associated with the ten themes in the Irish Curriculum along with all the grammar points teachers need to know to support their students. She continued collating comprehension, presentation and writing guides for teaching Irish. Yvonne planned Ar Aghaidh Leat to support a classroom of students with varied levels of Irish, thus helping teachers to differentiate lessons for varying student abilities
