We have had high demand for additional home learning materials given the ongoing need to teach most pupils remotely. Our team of Subject Specialists have been busy meeting this demand so we wanted to highlight new lesson plans on our Coronavirus Hub as well as our latest training and latest ‘Ask a Subject Specialist' video, covering age-appropriate RSE, support for teachers reluctant to teach RSE, and more.
New home learning resources
We’ve just added the following packs and lesson plans to our Coronavirus Hub:
'Staying friends': Relationships Education home learning lesson (KS2):
This new lesson will help your pupils to identify different types of friendship, understand what makes a good friend, and gain strategies for solving arguments and maintaining good friendships.
Careers education: opportunities, strengths & managing online presence (Yr9-11):
Use this pack of home learning lesson plans to support your students to demonstrate their personal strengths online, understand the importance of maintaining a positive online reputation and consider and how this can help them to secure future employment.
Healthy sleep habits (KS1-4):
we’ve now added a new KS1 lesson to our popular ‘Sleep Factor’ home learning pack. This pack explores the importance of bedtime routines and equips pupils with actions they can take to improve their sleep habits. Standard versions of the sleep factor materials are also available for classroom teaching.
Water safety: canals and rivers (KS2):
This home learning lesson plan has been adapted from our collaboration with the Environment Agency. It will help your pupils to identify and explain hazards, and know what to do in an emergency.
