OUR OWN LOCAL HISTORY WEBSITE

Please click on the    Local History  Icon on the top right hand side of our banner above. This will take you to ur Local History website. This website is a resource for teachers dealing with the History section of the Primary Curriculum. It covers the various strands and strand units of the History Curriculum for all clases in the Primary School. It has been designed for use by the class teacher in their classroom using an Interactive Whiteboard. It can also be accessed by parents and pupils at home on their desktop computer, laptop computer, or tablet computer in their own home. It is packed with interesting resources about historical events in Waterford and surrounding areas and interactive features that will appeal to and engage young learners.

WHAT IS GUIDED READING?
 


The Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) summarises guided reading as follows:

Teacher works with 4-6 students in each group

Using levelled/banded readers and multiple copies of these readers

Children are grouped according to similarities in reading and development and instructional reading levels

Teacher introduces/consolidates strategies and concepts to support independent reading

Every child reads and is supported by their teacher

We will also have online interactive software on Local History which will be very easy to use by every primary teacher in every primary classroom to teach the Primary History Curriculum from Junior Infants to Sixth Class.
