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….

Mata Focal – Sa Bhaile
Sa chomhad seo tá foclóir ag baint leis an téama “Sa Bhaile”. Bheadh sé oiriúnach do dhaltaí a bhéas ag déanamh scríbhneoireacht cruthaitheach sa seomra ranga nó ag déanamh saorscríbhneoireacht. Cuideoidh sé freisin le teanga ó bhéal, agus na daltaí ag déanamh comhrá faoi tithíocht.
St. Patrick’s Acrostic Poetry Templates
An acrostic poem is one where the beginning letter of each line spells out a particular word. Pupils generally tend to like to write these poems as they are easier than other types of poetry. This resource contains 21 St. Patrick’s themed Acrostic Poems templates for pupils to write their own seasonal poetry.
Book Review – Mr. Wolf Goes to the Ball
I read Mr. Wolf Goes to the Ball with 1st and 2nd Class and they loved it! The book is about a wolf who gets an invitation to a ball and he can’t decide what to wear. He decides he wants to wear a dress but the other animals tell him he shouldn’t. His friend the sheep encourages him to wear it and he loves it and feels amazing dancing the night away at the ball. read more…

As I began to read, I was surprised to find out that not one of my 29 pupils had ever heard of a heron before. Therefore, we got off to a good start as it was a way to develop their language and knowledge of a new bird from the beginning. read more…
