I’m so glad I found these worksheets. The mathematics my daughter got from school as learning remote are way too easy. Now I found this, and she will be challenged. (Year 2.)

Ana says: April 22, 2020 at 11.29am
These are fantastic!

Lauren says: April 20, 2020 at 2.25pm
Thank you for these work sheets. Whilst doing remote learning (due to covid 19) I am struggling to keep my daughter challenged. These will do just the trick. I’m sure she will also thank you later in life.

Leanne says: April 15, 2020 at 9.50am
As an old teacher (in every sense of the word) I was delighted to find your web page as I prepared to have my grandson here periodically during this covid19 lockdown. You have saved me hours of work not to mention saving the strain on my brain! :-))
Many thanks

Like countless thousands of parents in Australia and around the world, my wife and I have suddenly found ourselves home-schooling our two primary-aged kids due to Covid-19. I was struggling to find material to keep up with their needs, until I came across your wonderful website. You have put so much thought and effort into this material, and I can’t tell you the difference it has made to how I feel about the days ahead. Thank-you!

Great work. Our local schools are giving less and less homework for the grand-kids. We get together each Tue-thu for 2-3 hours and they enjoy these type of work sheets. These sheets are creative and will keep them busy and educated during the end of term and school holidays. Their local school has noticed a change, lower to higher class positions, in them and their grades have improved. Thanks, Keith

Gayle says: November 5, 2017 at 4:41am
This is the best website I have discovered that is so helpful for casual teachers.

Terine says: October 30, 2017 at 6:09pm
Thank you for the wonderful free resources you have provided.
I have used your numeracy and literacy ideas. Your website is one of my favourites because I don’t have to think about numeracy conversions and Americanism – your content is localised.

Karen says: October 21, 2017 at 6:42am
Thanks a lot for sharing these resources.
These units of work are fantastic and my students would definitely enjoy them!

Stephie says: October 11, 2017 at 2:55pm

Your worksheets easily fit in with what we’re working on in class and will help to ensure that he doesn’t miss out.
Thanks a million,

Jean says: August 8, 2016 at 7.37pm
Thank you Ron and Jacqueline for the most informative website you’ve both painstakingly created. I am a casual relief teacher and this website is the best I have come across. Surely,I will now be prepared for those last minute urgent calls to schools.


Sharon says: July 16, 2016 at 3.44pm
I am a new teacher in Australia from New Zealand.
I have found here that it is very difficult to find free resources to photo copy and pass on to kids.

I just wanted to write to say thank you so much for your resources and the fact they are free and usable in class to raise awareness of literacy and numeracy especially.
Well done and many many thanks,

Janine says: July 4, 2016 at 7.14pm
Thank you for your website! We have just pulled our 15 year old daughter (who has Autism, Intellectual Delay and ADHD) out of a Special School to Homeschool her. These worksheets and activities and ideas are perfect as she is at varying levels with her learning (eg. Prep for Reading Comprehension and Handwriting, Year 1 Maths, Year 2 English etc) and I can see we will be able to utilise these well with her! Thank you for sharing your skills!!

Kylie says: July 3, 2016 at 4.40pm
I have spent hours searching for something like this!!! these sheets are fantastic. I will be starting homeschool with my 7 yr old next week and this is just what we needed. great work! Will you be updating and adding sheets for older children as i would like to follow you for next year when he is in grade 3.

Thank you for the material. May God repay your kindness.

Alka Sharma says: June 7, 2016 at 4.07pm
Thank you for such a brilliant website. It is the best website that I have found for teaching my kids at home. I just love the clear, coherent way that you organise it all, but mostly it’s the content of the lesson ideas that is great.
Hope you will upload more workbooks for practice.

Viki says: May 19, 2016 at 4.55pm

Lucy says: April 5, 2016 at 09.08am
THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH… Everything I need for all 4 of my children from year 1 to Year 6 worksheets.
Better yet in booklet style (work book) rather than individual templates/worksheets.
I’ve spent half the day downloading, saving and printing individual worksheets for each child.
Australian Teacher you’re the best.:)

I am very interested in the book I found on the internet called 21 Best Loved Aussie Poems, Ballads and Songs.
I am hoping to convince our primary school to incorporate Australian poems and history into our school concert next year as I am tired of the modern songs they make the kids dress and dance to year after year after year.
This looks like an amazing collection and descriptions and educational descriptions also! Is it possible to purchase a copy?

I am starting home schooling from next year with a Grade 3 and Grade 1.

Hi Ron and Jacqueline,
I manage Red Cross volunteers who assist children from refugee background with homework tutoring on a one to one basis. I was wondering if our volunteer home work tutors are able to download your worksheets to use with the children?
Your worksheets would be really beneficial for our clients.

Thank you very much for this wonderful website.
My daughter even though quite smart was struggling in her double and triple digit subtractions and the teacher just told her about it. I guess it is because of lack of practice at home as all other kids nowadays. My problem was not knowing exactly the things they took at school. So with this I really thank you for giving us something to help with.
Will keep you posted on the progress.

Aj (Ash Jacob) says: January 18, 2013 at 8:23 am

Thank you for this fantastic free resource….up to date and very relevant.

Colleen York says: May 6, 2012 at 7:32 am
The purpose of critical thinking for today’s learners is to have them problem-solve. For too long we, as educators, have been presenting facts and often our own opinions and views on topics. Our students have lost this very art of problem-solving, critically thinking about different views to a topic and also how to research to be able to present their own informed view. It is the difficult questions which we need to encourage our leaders of the future to ponder, to discuss, to argue and to persuade. ‘Creative and Original Thinking’ is a valuable section which will help our students meet 21st century outcomes.

Great looking resources and even better being able to download/ share these with other teachers.
Thanks, keep up the good work.

These resources are great. Some of the most practical and useful I have had sent to me for quite some time. All were useful not just ‘one out of the bunch’. Thanks again.

Teacher’s Quiz 1. Edmund Barton was the 1st PM of Australia. Deakin was 2nd.

Thanks Wayne…well spotted.
Originally, the question asked for Australia’s 1st PM but we decided to make it harder. And, of course, we neglected to change the answer!
All fixed now.

The study mat for children is great!!
I am from India and my six-year-old is bright in maths (usually Indians are great at mathematics (although not much in research part). I hope this material helps my kid to understand the nuances of maths in order to delve deep into it.
Thanks and all the best,

As a new home schooling mum, I was glad to find these quizzes.
I plan on asking my children 2 age appropriate quiz questions daily.
Thank you

There are some nice activities here. Thanks.
The activity about even numbers being the sum of two odd primes is called Goldbach’s conjecture, and is a famous unproved conjecture in mathematics. This is a really nice example that shows mathematics as a living subject, with problems for which we don’t yet have an answer. Researching some of the historical aspects of primes and Goldbach’s conjecture is a great cross-curriculum activity. Also, if Goldbach’s conjecture for even numbers happens to be true, the result about odd numbers greater than 7 being the sum of 3 odd primes follows logically. Why? This is a good exercise in logical reasoning for children.

Hi Bernie,
Really appreciate you pointing out that error; sometimes such things can slip through unnoticed. Anyway it’s now fixed.
