Dear Primary School parents and families,
Many parents have asked the same question and I would like to answer and give some advice for all of you.
"How can I help my child to learn when they are online? Is there anything I can do to help them to do better in their studies?"
Learning and teaching online is always challenging however, the teachers at Haileybury have good experience to manage the needs of their students effectively.
If possible, try to have someone supervise the child while they are in class. This is especially important for the youngest learners, grades 1-3. You can help to focus your student when their attention starts to wander around their room. You can also ask them to explain to you, after class, what the teacher was talking about in class.
For the older students, perhaps the most important thing you can do is to make sure they have no distractions while in class (phone, TV’s on in the background, any other screens on their computers during class). You can also tell them before class that you would like them to give a summary to you about what they learned in the class. Finally, help your child to be sure they are finishing their homework and sending pictures to the teacher, so the teacher can check the homework and correct any problems.
