Year 2 School Closure - Learning From Home Pack

Upgrade to Access | 95 pages (PDF)|Grade: 2

A collection of age-appropriate Year 2 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 learning 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 Learning 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 Working from Home

How can I teach my year 2 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.

What an amazing resource to provide for free. Thankyou so much. I have had to keep my child home under doctors advice because she has an immune deficiency disease and this is a huge help to make sure she does not fall behind.

Is this Based on the Australian Curriculum or not

Rose Thomas · Mar 17th, 2020

Hi there Rose. The literacy and numeracy activities contained within this pack most certainly do align with the Australian Curriculum for Year 2!

Stephanie (Teach Starter) · Mar 17th, 2020

Would it possible to get answer packs for these packs?

Michelle Caruso · Mar 16th, 2020

Hi there Michelle, thank you for your comment and your feedback. We do intend to create answer booklets for these packs… great minds think alike! As we wanted to get these great packs out to teachers and parents as quickly as possible, the answers were put aside for the time being. Keep watching the website for the answer packs to be released. Have a wonderful day!

Stephanie (Teach Starter) · Mar 17th, 2020
