PRIMARY HOME SCHOOLING RESOURCES
Over the next few months many of us will be staying home. For many, this does mean they will be working from home while also trying to ensure their children are being taught. Homeschooling does not mean that your child needs to be doing 6-8 hours of worksheets every day – in fact, this will have the opposite effect and make them disengage from learning completely. Short bursts of lessons with follow up activities can be the best way to learn and also give you a bit of time to finish off a work task.
At My Academy, we are offering online options to help ease the pressure of teaching your child as well as making sure that your child will not lose a year of education. All of the options are online and conducted by qualified registered teachers following the Australian National Curriculum. These are in addition to our usual 1 on 1 tuition and group tuition that is continuing online.
PARENT GROUP SESSIONS
For parents that would like to teach the topics to their child we are offering a very quick 15-minute group session to demonstrate how each topic is now taught in school. Every parent has heard the line “That’s not how my teacher does it”. Our teachers are here to show you how they do teach various topics. We will be able to provide a list of topics or follow a school curriculum and teach parents how to teach those topics each week / day. If you would like to work with a group of parents from the same school this would also be great as it will mean you all need to cover the same topics at the same time.
PRIMARY GROUP OPTIONS YEARS 2 – 6
Online small group sessions to be conducted by a qualified teacher focusing on Maths and English. These sessions are for a limited time to run as support when students are not necessarily at school and are being homeschooled. The teacher tutor would teach the group through a range of resources that would be available to download through the session, using our secure online platform. If any hands-on materials are required we would give you plenty of prior notice. For Example, dice for a Maths lesson. Ideally these groups are for children in the same school and we can follow the termly topics, which in turn will help their class teacher just continue as planned when school returns. These groups will have a maximum of 8 students per group to ensure that the teacher tutor is able to aide every child within the session times.
START OF THE DAY GROUP
For students that are happy to work more independently and do not require the assistance of a teacher once they have grasped a topic. The My Academy tutors will run 30-minute group sessions to teach a particular topic for the day, it can be in Maths, English or a combination of the two. They will then provide links to resources for the students to use to practise the taught topics. If you would also prefer for the teacher to mark these resources this is also an option for a very small fee. These sessions can be run daily or a couple of times a week depending on your needs.
START OF THE DAY 1 ON 1 SESSION
These 30-minute sessions run with the same concept as the group sessions with the added bonus that they are 100% tailored to your child and will be taught according to their learning style. The teacher will teach a topic at the start of the day and provide links to resources for practice. If you would also prefer for the teacher to mark these resources this is also an option for a very small fee. These sessions can be run daily or a couple of times a week depending on your needs.
