Resources for Teachers

The move from face-to-face to online teaching isn’t easy. It’s likely that all the plans and resources you had lined up for the summer term won’t work in the way you intended, so we’ve developed projects that you can adapt for use in school with your children who are vulnerable or whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and for children learning at home.

Home Learning Packs

Our Home Learning Packs for Teachers have been written by teachers, for teachers. Each one should provide you with activity ideas as starting points for planning for two weeks of learning and new themes will come out fortnightly. The resources are linked to the Early Learning Goals and Primary National Curriculum Subject Content which means you can continue to track your pupils’ progress through their subjects. It’s clear from the Secretary of State for Education, Gavin Williamson, that the government is focused on ensuring that the educational progress of our young people faces as little disruption as possible and these packs will help you do this by giving you some ideas to work from.

TIP: Make sure your school’s tracking system allows you to easily collect data on pupils’ home learning. Our Home Learning Packs will enable you to record assessments and evidence of learning in your normal assessment framework markbooks.

Juniper Reading Challenge

This six-book challenge is designed to keep children KS1 – KS2 reading at home, to engage parents with their child’s reading and to make choosing a book a little bit easier.

Help And Support For Children, Young People, Parents And Families

Lockdown can be tough. We’re not used to being confined with the same people all the time. Relationships can strain. Children and young people’s behaviour can be challenging. It can be difficult to know how to have conversations about the COVID-19 Pandemic.

This page has links to resources that can help you, whether it’s a story to help explain what’s happening, advice about particular issues or a helpline for times of crisis. There is a wealth of help available to support you.
