The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA), has produced some lovely booklets about the 'What, How and Why of children's learning in primary school'. These booklets are available to download for each class level here:
NCCA Primary Booklets
Each booklet presents information about what children learn, how they learn and the approaches and methodologies teachers use in the classroom. It also talks about assessment, homework and the importance of learning at home.
We hope you will find these booklets helpful to understanding better what your child learns in primary school and give you practical suggestions of how to get involved in your child's learning.
