Back 2 Basics Activity Packs - The Primary Teacher Resource Centre - Our Shop!

Back 2 Basics is a carousel of activities aimed at giving children regular practise at the basic skills of reading, writing and number work. Each activity is planned to last approximately 10-15 minutes, and is ideal to be completed first thing in the morning or straight after lunch. The children complete one activity every day so it is best to create 5 groups within your classroom. As the teacher you can then decide which group you work with - for example you may like to work with the reading group.

The activities include:

  • 1x Reading activity
  • 1x Number activity
  • 1x Word or sentence activity linked to weekly spellings
  • 1x Times table activity
  • 1x Handwriting activity

These cards are best printed and laminated so that they can be used throughout the week and again the following year. Each week consists of 5 activity cards (one for every day of the week) They are not differentiated but some of the activities do have challenges to stretch early finishers.

This resources are provided in PDF format. You will receive 12 weeks worth of activities.
