Over the next few weeks we will be covering some new Irish themes. We know teaching Irish at home can be very tricky so we have made these PowerPoint easy to use and we have added voice clips to help with pronunciation at home. We will also be worksheets for some of the lessons that will be available to download. If you do not have a printer you can just draw/ write on a blank piece of paper or in a copy. Please make sure you have downloaded the free PowerPoint app on your phone/tablet/computer to access the PowerPoints.
Here are a list of phrases that we have learned that you can practice everyday at home:
