RTÉ 2 | RTÉ Player | RTÉ.IE, Monday 30th March - Thursday 28th May

RTÉ Home School Hub – Bilingual teachers present three short class segments aimed at 1st & 2nd class | 3rd & 4th class | 5th & 6th class.

RTÉ has announced a new Home School Hub across its television and online platforms, which will provide primary school children with fun daily lessons from the comfort of their homes. RTÉ and Macalla Teo, with support from Mary Immaculate College, have collaborated to introduce a cross-platform teaching initiative for primary school kids across the country. On RTÉ2, RTÉ Player, and rte.ie/learn, children will be able to watch, download and engage with curriculum-based content, project work, and fun activities that will keep them entertained and learning.

Each morning from 11.00am – 12.00pm on RTÉ Home School Hub on RTÉ2, each of the bilingual teachers will present three short class segments aimed at 1st & 2nd class | 3rd & 4th class | 5th & 6th class. The TV programme will keep the kids watching and learning for the hour and then redirect them to fun content and project work that will be housed on rte.ie/learn and RTÉ Player.

A catch-up programme later in the day, RTÉ Home School Extra at 4.15pm, is a takeover format, where primary school kids from all over the country can reconnect by uploading and posting video messages and content that RTÉ will showcase. This programme will be an opportunity to gather all uploaded user-generated content in one space and showcase it to the entire country. No matter where you are from or what language you speak, every school kid can take part. All content will be presented by primary school teachers, modelled, and curated around the existing primary school curriculum. The bilingual teaching team will deliver engaging, exciting, and educational content and over the coming weeks RTÉ Home School Hub will be stockpiling content across TV, rte.ie/learn and RTÉ Player for all primary school kids and their parents to use.
