Making the move to Secondary school
We know that the move from 6th Class to 1st year can be a challenging time for children and their parents. We have developed a practical guide for parents to help support their children with this transition, authored by experienced counsellor and teacher Graham Richmond. This guide is available here.
What we do
We produce high quality school books and digital resources to help teachers deliver the curriculum in the classroom. For primary, the digital activities, games, poems and songs are used on the interactive whiteboard. While in secondary, the resources include PowerPoints, videos and more to bring lessons to life. We also provide learning platforms where teachers can access the digital materials and students can access their eBooks.
Special Educational Needs
We are very proud to be working with Bookshare Ireland, the largest accessible digital library for people with print disabilities. If your child has a learning difficulty or physical disability that limits their ability to read standard print, you can access the formats they need through Bookshare. All our primary school books are now available with Bookshare. Our secondary school books will be available there soon, in the meantime you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We make eBooks for most of our post-primary student textbooks. Students can access the eBooks through our FolensHIVE app, which can be downloaded to their phone or device. There is a scratch panel on the inside of our textbooks, with a unique licence code. Students can use this code to download the eBook in our app.
We have podcasts to go along with our latest Junior Cycle and Leaving Cert language school books. These help students practice their language skills both in and outside the classroom.
