A collection of age-appropriate, Reception teaching resources and activities for parents to use with their children or teachers to send home with students during unexpected school closures.
This teaching resource pack has been handpicked by the Teach Starter team to include a range of resources that can be completed at home by children with the assistance of their parents or guardians.
The pack includes resources covering the key learning areas of English, Maths and Science, along with some additional craft and mindfulness activities.
In the rare event of a school closure, this pack can be sent home with students or passed on 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 for non-teachers to understand and implement the 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.
