A collection of age-appropriate Year 5 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.

For Teachers with Students Learning from Home

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

For Parents with Children Working from Home

How can I teach my Year 5 child if their school closes?

Hi there, don’t know if it’s been mentioned. The 1 to 12 x colour fun answer sheet is incorrect, 12 x 2 is 24, not 8 as the answer says.

This is an amazing resource. It covers a great range of the curriculum and will save teachers time in coming up with extra work. My site will be using this if families choose to self-isolate. Thank you TeachStarter team for going to the effort of putting this together.
