Year 4 School Closure – Learning From Home Pack

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 19 pages | Years: 4

A collection of age-appropriate Year 4 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 Learning from Home

    What an amazing resource! I'd love for this to be an editable version where students could type into it as students at my school are looking at working digitally through Google Classroom.

      Hi Sarah, Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. As the situation unfolds, we will strive to provide the best level of support for teachers, parents and students. Keep letting us know how we can help!

    Hi, is this editable with Microsoft word or will it need to be printed off?

    • Stephanie (Teach Starter)
      ·

      Hi there George, thank you for your question. At this stage, the pack is only available as a PDF download - we wanted to get this great resource out to our teachers and parents as soon as we possibly could. We always welcome suggestions from our members, though, and as this current situation continues to evolve we will definitely keep your feedback in mind for future resources. Have a wonderful day!

    Thank you so much for this resource. I have been a member of TS for two years now and speak highly of your resources to other teachers. Even though we have not had to close (yet???!!!!), it is great to know this resource is available to us. Helps bring a bit of peace and positivity to an ever-changing, unstable time.
