RTE are very busy trying to meet the educational needs of our young people.
The music department have been active in consultation with teachers and are making resources available through the Hub and accompanying Podcasts.
The Homeschool Hub Podcast is an extension of the TV Show on RTÉ 2. Every day RTE will add new audio material that supports the days TV lessons, but in a way that is not repetition but rather gives new media for kids to listen to rather than watch.
We will feature musicians talking about their instruments, Nature, Science, History, Geography and, each Friday we will post two table quizzes; one for 1st to 3rd Class, the other for 4th to 6th. The ideal way to complete the week and go back over all they were introduced to on both the Hub and the Podcast.
The TV show is invaluable for Parents and kids alike but this is another way to get kids engaged in learning without having to depend upon a screen.
It's available wherever people get their podcasts but the link is below.
