Year 3 School Closure - Learning From Home Pack

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 21 pages | Years: 3

A collection of age-appropriate Year 3 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.

    Thank you very much. This is really helpful. Can I ask you how much math, English, science do the kids need in a daily basis. How much activities and how much time could you help please

    • Paul (Teach Starter)

      hi Ikhlas, Thanks for your kind words! The recommended daily amount of time students work within subject areas depends on their age and the state/education system they belong to. As a very general guide, children would spend one and a half to two hours on English, and one to one and a half hours on Mathematics each day. The remaining one to one and a half hours would be for additional learning areas such as Science, History, Physical Education etc which would be typically completed once a week. Please don't hesitate to contact us at [email protected] if we can be of further assistance.

    The schools are under such pressure at the moment, and really only have limited time to put work up on the school website. This is fantastic, and enables parents to keep their kids busy with the right type of worksheets appropriate for their age group. Thank you so much! Life saving!

    Many thanks for making these high quality materials available to the community for free. A very valuable contribution to the community and our future - particularly to help ensure continuing education for those kids whose parents may not be able to afford to access expensive packs (that often promise the world but dont deliver!)
