RTE Home School Hub

Tune in to the RTE Home School Hub where 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.

Every week day morning from 11am to 12 noon, on RTE 2, bilingual teachers will present three short class segments aimed at 1st and 2nd class, 3rd and 4th class and 5th and 6th class.

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.
