The content for Junior and Senior Infants is based on pre-cursive letters, with 1st Class formally beginning a fully cursive style.

Each book places a major emphasis on a variety of pattern practice to facilitate the pupil’s acquisition of each letter.

  • Sequence of letters carefully arranged: At infant level, the Jolly Phonics sequence for letter introduction is mirrored. From 1st Class on-wards, the progression is based on clockwise and anticlockwise letter formation, while diagonal and horizontal joins are carefully introduced.
  • Red and blue guiding lines are used to help pupils learn letter sizes and spacing.
  • Emphasis on practice throughout, at the individual letter level, progressing to words and sentences, finishing in paragraphs.
  • Each book contains a variety of separate activities that involve cross-curricular themes, drawn from areas such as Gaeilge, history, geography, English and SPHE.
