Welcome to Seomra Ranga, the Hub for Primary School Resources. For the overseas visitors “Seomra Ranga” means “classroom” in the Irish language.
Seomra Ranga has been successfully providing tried and tested resources for primary school classrooms since 2007. Since that time, the site has gradually built up a strong following amongst educators as a repository of quality teacher-created resources. The resources on the site, which support all areas of the curriculum, are arranged in accordance with the curricular provisions of the Irish primary school….

This Visual Arts lesson is aimed at pupils in middle and senior classes. It requires printing inks and printing rollers, with which the pupils may not be familiar. In this way it may be a new and interesting experience for the pupils. The finished product of this lesson is always beautiful.
As teachers, we are usually the ones asking the questions and getting the pupils to provide the answers. The aim of this resource is to reverse that process – giving the pupils the answers and asking them to construct the questions for these answers. There are 50 answer cards in this pack for pupils to create the questions, four per A4 page.

Last night, I presented at the CESI (Computers in Education Society of Ireland) TeachMeet online via Zoom. A TeachMeet is like an informal conference where people give short presentations of between 2-7 minutes. This resource is the presentation I delivered on mobile apps on the theme of “Words”.

This new resource, published to coincide with Science Week 2023, is aimed at making pupils aware of the variety of mammals that can be found in Ireland. The pack consists of 20 different photo posters of Irish mammals as Gaeilge using high quality photos which would make a great display in the classroom or school corridor.
The purpose of this resource is to create a fun and active lesson for Science Week, where pupils get out of their desks to complete the task. Suitable for junior/middle classes, the cards on the trail ask the question: “Is this mammal found in the wild in Ireland?” Pupils simply have to answer yes or no to each question. There are 26 picture cards on the trail.
This updated resource explains what it means to work scientifically and it outlines the key skills involved in working scientifically in the classroom. The resource has a header poster, three explainer posters followed by 24 flashcards with vocabulary for the key skills involved.
