Year 1 School Closure - Learning From Home Pack

Upgrade to Access | 95 pages (PDF)|Grade: 1

A collection of age-appropriate Year 1 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.

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.

For Teachers with Students Working from Home

Can I share this pack with parents, students and other teachers?

Of course! This pack has been created specifically to support teachers, guardians and parents with children who are learning remotely or being educated at home, so share it with others.

You can share it by copying the URL in the address bar of your browser, or by clicking on the envelope icon above to send the link to an email address. You can also download the pack and email the PDF document to parents who are educating their children at home. 

Please bundle this pack with your own home learning or homeschooling activities to extend or reinforce particular concepts for your students. You may also like to add specific activities such as reading, outdoor play, fine motor skills, etc.

For Parents with Children Learning from Home

How can I teach my Year 1 child if their school closes?

Downloading this resource pack will equip you with a range of activities to share with your child while their school is closed or while they are learning remotely from home.

We have provided a helpful table of contents and activity overview to ensure that non-teachers can use and deliver this pack easily. All activities are age-appropriate, can be completed in any order, and relate to work that your child has probably already experienced in the classroom.

This is amazing. We have a resource pack from our sons teacher but we can do this as a little added bonus. LOVE the ANZAC arts and crafts!

i really love the detailed outline of the studies. i was wondering if all is free esp at the moment with the covid 19. I had a basic school plan but they didnt have much to give us parents to do for our children. i found this page while looking up ideas to do with my children’s learning- grade 1 and grade 3. does this cost me to download the two programs for my children to do while home from school?
