How To Support Your Child’s Learning From Home.

How To Support Your Child’s Learning From Home.

Dear Parents, this may be a worrying time for you and your family as you try to maintain a sense on normality in the lives of your children over the coming weeks. In order to provide you with some support on how to navigate the difficulties of remote learning with your child we would like to advise you of the following:

The teachers of Colaiste Pobail Setanta are working hard to ensure that your children, our students, can keep up with their studies through our online teaching platforms.

You can play a key role in supporting your child’s learning by following a few simple steps.

  • Set up a learning space in your home where your son/daughter can complete the work that their teachers set every day. This can be a temporary place at the kitchen table.
  • Know your child’s Timetable. If possible, print it off and stick it to the fridge in the kitchen. Our teachers are following the timetable in that they will have uploaded the work for that day’s subjects by 8:30am. This is the work your child will be expected to complete that day.
  • Check your child’s emails. Our teachers are emailing work and sharing links to work and resources by emailing your child on the school’s email. Please take the time to check through the emails your child is receiving from teachers so that you are aware of the work that is expected to be completed.
  • Ask your child to write down the work for that day in their journal. So that you and they can keep track of this each day.
  • Check your child’s OneNote. This is an app on Office 365 that our teachers use to share content with all students. This is the platform along with email where work and resources are shared.
  • Check that the work is completed. Inspect and check that your child has completed their work by asking them to show it to you in the evening time. This should be done in conjunction your child timetable.
  • Check sent emails. Ensure that your child has sent the completed work for correction to their teacher. Teachers are expecting the work they set to be completed and returned for correction. This is a vital part of the learning experience.
  • Talk to your son/daughter about any questions, worries and concerns they might have around the work they are being set and encourage them to ask questions of their teachers for clarity.
  • This situation is new to everyone and we are all learning together so be patient and take care of each other.
