Year 5 - Week 1 Learning From Home Timetable

Teach Starter Publishing
Word, PDF | 8 pages | Years: 5

A pack of timetabled, age-appropriate Year 5 teaching resources and activities that parents can use to educate children remotely or that teachers can send to students working at home if schools are closed.

The Teach Starter team has handpicked these resources for Year 5 children to complete at home over one week with the help of their parents or guardians if schools are closed unexpectedly.

These curriculum-aligned, remote-learning resources cover the learning areas of English, Maths and Science, along with some craft and mindfulness activities.

If schools close, or if children need to be educated from home or homeschooled, teachers can print this pack of curriculum-aligned resources and send it home with Year 5 students, download it digitally via a link, or email it to parents and guardians as a home-learning pack that allows students to work with minimal preparation and supervision.

Parents and guardians should be able to understand these tasks and activities and to set them in a homeschooling or home-learning environment, without requiring materials or resources found in a classroom. Resources in the pack can be completed on a tablet/iPad or printed and completed with a pen or pencil.

How to Use This Pack to Teach Students Working Remotely

A timetable for children who are learning from home is included, suggesting a day of the week and a time of the day to complete each resource. The pack also includes an editable version that you can adjust to suit your needs while teaching children remotely or using Google Classroom.

The amount of time you allow for a child to complete each educational home-learning task should be tailored to their needs. As a rule of thumb, give them as much time as they need, but watch for signs of fatigue that suggest children may need a break.

Whether following the suggested timetable or setting your own, be sure to include meal breaks and – most importantly – time to play! We recommend bundling this pack with your own at-home learning and educational activities, such as reading, outdoor play, fine motor skills, games and craft activities.

    Hi Paul, Year 5 Week 1 learning from home timetable has 64 pages with resources but when you click on to download, it shows only 8 pages and no resorces to go with the timetable. Thanks.

    Note to teachers, check for duplication before using this package in combination with the 'School Closure - Learning From Home Pack' as the same materials are included.

      Hi Dayna, The Week 1 pack is composed from the larger Learning From Home compilation. The Week 2 packs will also contain some of the original pack and some different resources. From Week 3, the packs will contain resources not currently in any other LFH compilation. Keep letting us know how we can help!

    It would be wonderful if the packs were sorted by day assigned, rather than by subject.

      Hi Dayna, Thank you for your comment! We've tried to compile the PDF so that the worksheets are in chronological order. Where a task contains several pages that are worked on over several days, we have placed the entire resource on/in the day where it is first presented. We hope these packs will help teachers, parents and students. If there is anything more Teach Starter can do, we are more than happy to hear it! Thanks again!
