Irish Independent Education Products
The Irish Independent has developed engaging learning resources in partnership with the Institute of Education, at Dublin City University, EPI-STEM at the University of Limerick and An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta & Gaelscolaíochta. The six supplements offer our children the opportunity to learn in an interactive manner across both primary and secondary schools.
Eureka is a colourful, 4 page science magazine published weekly for primary schools. With over 33 issues, Eureka covers all key strands through topics that are engaging and fun for pupils. Each week includes fun facts, experiments and activities to give your pupils an exciting resource they can bring home. A year long issue plan, as well as a weekly planner for teachers will also be included for our customers.
The Seachtain Óg supplement is published weekly as part of the Irish Independent’s language offering. Seachtain Óg covers all ten themes of the primary school curriculum, as well as some cross-subject topics over 4 pages. Ideal for any Irish class, this supplement provides topical and engaging content for pupils, with added notes for teachers. News, sport, entertainment and more engross pupils with relevant content and added curriculum links throughout each issue!
Scope is our monthly 4 page Maths magazine which aims to encourage mathematical awareness and curiosity among primary school students. On the first Wednesday of each month, Scope encourages pupils to engage in mathematical problem solving through exploration of topics such as Shapes, Numbers, the Environment, Sports, Seasons, Transport and more.
Science Scope is a secondary level, four page Science supplement which helps teachers get to grips with the new science specification, and assists them in formulating assessment by combining the nature of science throughout the syllabus.
This worksheet will aid students skills and development, and is a valuable tool that promotes critical thinking and focuses on the learning objectives of the curriculum, to act as a teaching and learning resource. Science in media can also be analysed through each copy of the Irish Independent, in particular Monday’s Health and Living supplement.
Réidh le plé
Is sraith bhríomhar í Réidh le Plé! atá dírithe ar dhaltaí na Sraithe Sóisearaí agus ar dhaltaí na hArdteiste araon. Gach Céadaoin tabharfar aghaidh arís ar an gcúrsa Gaeilge don tSraith Shóisearach le béim mhór ar ghnéithe nua an churaclaim cosúil le húrscéalaíocht,
gearrscéalaíocht, gearrscannánaíocht, amhránaíocht, litríocht bhéil/ áitiúil agus drámaíocht. Anuas air sin uile, leanfar i mbliana le hábhar den scoth a chur ar fáil do lucht na hArdteiste idir ábhar cainte, gramadaí, litríochta agus léitheoireachta.
