A collection of age-appropriate Reception 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.
