Top 12 Ways to Support Your Child's E-Learning

It’s a really challenging time for everyone in the international community of China right now. Due to the recent COVID-19 situation, many parents are rising to the challenge of working at home and e-learning. 


At BSB Sanlitun, we believe that every challenge is an opportunity to reflect and learn. Teachers at BSB Sanlitun continue to follow the UK curriculum and find engaging ways to ensure the continuity of learning and development of each child.

During this process of remote learning, here are 12 valuable pieces of advice we have received over the past couple of weeks to help you manage day to day arrangements and navigate the newness of remote learning as we all adapt to this new situation. We hope you find them useful!


  • Follow a schedule each day during the week to complete the activities – preferably in line with the school timetable.

  • Use a calendar so that your child can mark off when they have completed assignments/ daily tasks.

  • For younger children, give them the opportunity to submit their own assignments and read the responses from their teachers.

  • Use an online video exercise session to allow for movement. 

  • If a task becomes overwhelming, stop and come back to it later. If it becomes unmanageable, simply leave it and your child can discuss it with their teacher upon their return to school.

  • Complete homework on the day it is assigned. Leaving homework to the last minute means that assignments needing to be completed build up, often leaving children feeling overwhelmed. This way it is done and out of the way, making time for other activities!

  • Allow your child to take regular breaks; this includes moving about and moving to a different space.

  • Particularly for younger children, set up a reward system for completed tasks; for example, treats, family time (perhaps playing a board game), or a special weekend activity.


Remember that learning should be engaging, fun, and practical. At BSB Sanlitun, we believe very much in hands on learning and this can be reflected in the home. Some ways BSB Sanlitun families are having fun and learning together. 


  • Cook together – choose some new recipes and get your child involved.

  • Share the household chores – this is a good opportunity to teach your child some of the basics.

  • Declutter and tidy up – playrooms, bedrooms, basements etc. 

  • Take this time to brush up on your Mandarin.
