Core Subjects

01-April-19

At Firhouse Educate Together Secondary School we have 3 Core Subjects all students are required to take.

Maths

Maths focuses on developing students’ ability to think logically, strategically, critically, and creatively, while empowering individuals to become critical citizens through the exploration of:

  • Number
  • Geometry & Trigonometry
  • Algebra & Functions
  • Statistics & Probability
  • Unifying strand.

These capabilities enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing mathematics to make informed decisions and solve problems efficiently.

English

English in junior cycle aims to develop students’ knowledge of language and literature, to consolidate and deepen their literacy skills and make them more self-aware as learners.

More specifically it encourages all students:

  • to be creative through language and to gain enjoyment and continuing personal growth from English in all its forms
  • to develop control over English using it and responding to it with purpose and effect through the interconnected literacy skills of oral language, reading and writing
  • to engage personally with and think critically about an increasingly broad range of spoken, written and multimodal texts
  • to develop an informed appreciation of literature through personal encounters with a variety of literary texts
  • to use their literacy skills to manage information needs, and find, use, synthesise, evaluate and communicate information using a variety of media
  • to gain an understanding of the grammar and conventions of English and how they might be used to promote clear and effective communication
