With school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will do everything we can to help teachers, parents and guardians. We have extracted units of work from a range of our curriculum-aligned resources, and you can access and use them as digital worksheets. Covering all subject areas, these resources are the perfect supplement to complement your teaching.


To support parents and guardians with structuring and delivering home learning for children, TES have gathered a collection of teacher-created learning resources designed to engage both primary and secondary students and help them learn and study outside of their usual classroom environment.

All of these resources are completely free to download and use and include lessons, worksheets, workbooks and activities across a multitude of subject disciplines, ranging from EYFS to KS4 (GCSE). With these resources, you can be confident that students will remain engaged and challenged throughout this period of social distancing and isolation.https://www.tes.com/teachi…/teacher-essentials/home-learning

Parenting in a pandemic can place additional stress on families. To help families affected by school closures, we’ve developed free resources for parents designed to help support their children in their learning at home. We hope that by providing children with entertaining and educational activities to try at home, we will be able to lessen the burden on parents and carers whilst helping to keep children happy, engaged and productive during this challenging time.

📥Resources:

To access the resources, simply go to Kidstars' Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/thekidstars/). They can be found in the E-resources album. Alternatively, you may also PM us to get the resource packs in PDF format. These resource packs will be regularly updated with new learning materials so be sure to check back in.

We hope you utilise these free resources for the benefit of your child during this month of school closure.

Lastly, please help to share this post. We hope to reach parents who are in need of additional aids during this difficult time. Thank you 💕
