I, Peaseblossom and I, Malvolio introduce two of the Bard’s better known plays through their lesser known characters with disarming theatricality.

I came across the link to this video today on Twitter. It shows 1969 footage of Jim Henson, creator of the Muppets, showing how to make simple puppets using everyday materials like socks, a tennis ball, fabric and even an envelope. It gives great ideas for the teacher to show pupils how easy it is to make a simple puppet. These could then be used for a great drama lesson.
Seo na focail agus an fís-scannán don amhrán “Níl Mé ag Bogadh”. Is dócha go bhfuil an fonn ar eolas ag na daltaí sna hardranganna, mar is é “The Man Who Can’t be Moved” an teideal don amhrán i mBéarla ó “The Script”. Mar sin, b’fhéidir go dtaitneoidh sé leis na daltaí agus beidh suim [...]

Chuir mé ceist do mhúinteoirí go luath ar leathanach Facebook Seomra Ranga ag lorg amhráin/dánta/rannta leis an fonn ó Frere Jacques.

“Getting to Know You” is a well-known song from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “The King and I” and I taught it to classes for many years. It’s very appropriate to teach in school as it is sung by Anna, the new teacher, in the musical to the children in her class. The song is [...]
I recently asked on the Seomra Ranga Facebook Page for suggestions of classroom songs/rhymes to the tune of “Frere Jacques”. I got plenty of suggestions from teachers. I also came across some others on the internet. These are the ones that we gathered in English. There is also another set as Gaeilge. If you have [...]
