To support teachers and parents/carers with the continued closure of schools, we have produced a number of resources and COVID-19 lesson plans:

  • To provide resources for home and lockdown learning.
  • To help deal with schools shutting.
  • To keep education at the forefront during the coronavirus lockdown.

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a coronavirus which caused a worldwide pandemic and dominated the news during much of 2020 and 2021.

How Did COVID-19 Affect People?

Everyday life changed in a big way during the coronavirus with the introduction of lockdowns, periods of self-isolation (cocooning) and social distancing which caused loneliness and social detachment for many. People also had to get used to wearing a mask, using PPE and the sanitising of hands and equipment.

There was also the financial impact caused by the pandemic such as a dramatic decrease in family income due to furloughing or people losing their jobs altogether.

Ultimately, people around the world were concerned about actually catching the COVID-19 virus which caused many physical and mental issues. Our COVID-20 page explains how the coronavirus affected people psychologically.

How Did COVID-19 Affect Education?

Young people were massively affected by the coronavirus outbreak. The closure of schools for long periods led to interrupted learning, cancelled exams and a significant loss of daily structure.

To ensure the continuity of education, schools turned to technology and virtual learning with many teachers providing lessons via radio, TV and the internet. Young people were totally at ease with new technology and having lessons via PC, tablet, or mobile phone was second nature to many. However, not every child has access to this type of equipment and many do not have internet access in their homes making online learning difficult. Therefore many vulnerable children or those from poorer backgrounds fell behind their peers during lockdown and some even dropped out of school.

All Resources has published a number of educational resource packs and lesson plans, as well as free resources for teachers, students and schools. We have also recently produced a range of resources and lesson plans covering specific COVID-19 coronavirus topics. You can view these below:
