Foundation/Prep School Closure - Learning From Home Pack

Upgrade to Access | 94 pages (PDF)|Grade: F

A collection of age-appropriate Foundation/Prep teaching resources and activities to help parents homeschool their children or for teachers to send home with students during unexpected school closures.

The Teach Starter team has handpicked this learning from home resource pack to include a range of resources that children can complete at home with the assistance of parents or guardians in the event of schools being closed or while homeschooling.

Included resources in this at-home learning pack for parents or guardians cover the key learning areas of English, Maths and Science, along with some additional craft and mindfulness activities – all for free!

If schools close, or if a student needs to work remotely, this pack can be sent home with children or emailed directly to parents and guardians digitally to allow for students to complete the work remotely with minimal preparation and supervision.

The pack is designed to allow non-teachers to understand and set the tasks and activities in a home environment, without requiring additional resources found in a classroom. The pack can be completed digitally on a tablet/iPad or with pen and paper when printed.

Hi does Foundation/Prep School also mean Kindergarten..?

Kylie Grida · Mar 23rd, 2020

Hi Kylie,

Foundation year has many names in Australia, including Prep and Kindergarten, depending on one’s location. Foundation generally equates to Kindergarten in USA and Reception in UK. It’s always best to check the content to see whether it is suitable for your students.

May I suggest lower case letters instead of upper case, as these are the focus for this age group.

Hi Flora,

Thank you for your suggestion! We are keen to hear any thoughts our members have in order to make these packs, and all of our resources, as relevant as possible. If there is anything else Teach Starter can do, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
