Attending and reflecting on Clann Lir with your class will explore many of the key strands of the drama and Gaeilge curricula, both for schools where English is the medium of instruction and for scoileanna lán-Ghaeilge. These particularly relate to reflecting on drama and fostering the child’s enthusiasm for and enjoyment in using the language.
