“Nollaig Ar Scoil” Twitter Project

After the unexpected success of the Christmas Twitter Project last year, where so many schools Tweeted about what they were doing in their classrooms on the theme of Christmas, it was inevitable that it should return for a second year.

Nollaig Ar Scoil” was the name of last year’s Twitter Project and the idea is really simple. Just Tweet with your pupils any time over the next two weeks about any Christmas-themed work that you are doing in your classroom or school. Even better, Tweet a photo of some of your work. To keep all of the Tweets together, use the following Twitter hashtag:#NollaigArScoil

Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to Nollaig Shona, the new Seomra Ranga website for all your Christmas resources! After a lot of planning, designing and preparation over the last six months , the new site is finally online. The process to create the new website actually started shortly after Christmas last year when I realised that the number of Christmas resources had grown rapidly and that it was becoming increasingly more difficult to organise and manage them with the programme that I had been using. I was finding it increasingly time-consuming updating the site with new resources as well as trying to maintain a proper structure and navigation to the site.
