How much time should Home learning take?

Children will be given at least a week in which to complete their home learning task.

As a guide - time to be spent on creative learning tasks:

Y6 – 60 mins

Y5 – 50 mins

Y4 – 40 mins

Y3 – 30 mins

Y2 – 20 mins


Reading  and maths practice is in addition to these recommended times.


Home learning across the school

Reception: regular reading at home is the main focus for home learning.

Y1: the main focus for home learning is still reading, but it may also include some maths number facts.  Occasional creative tasks may be set.


Home learning is not set for children who are absent from school on holiday.  Parents of children absent for more than a few days due to accident or illness may ask for activities from the class teacher.
