As you are aware, the world is going through a very difficult period of time right now with the outbreak of COVID-19.
Everything is shutting down and whole cities are going into lockdown. Without doubt, your child's education is going to be affected as more and more schools are being closed to help contain the virus.
Many teachers around the world are currently trying their best to teach children remotely using video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Google Meet. This is a testament to teachers around the world who continue to show their versatility and resilience when faced with an issue to try and minimise impact on student's learning.
As a parent at home, you may be wondering what things you can do to help your children with their education at home. It is in fact a wonderful opportunity for your children to learn some new skills that they wouldn't usually learn in the classroom. This could be in the form of cleaning; laundry; money & budgeting; grocery shopping; cooking; gardening etc.
With regard to their education, there are so many websites right now that are providing free resources for children who are learning at home.
Here are a list of great learning packs you can use right now:

Year 5 & 6
