Weekly Home Learning Activities

At Key Stage 2 children should continue to read to their parents or carers, or, if they are already fluent readers, read on their own for between 10 and 20 minutes per day. In Key Stage 2, we initially expect a minimum of one and a half hours of home learning a week and will increase though years 3 to 6, preparing them for Secondary School expectations of up to an hour and a half each night. In Year 3- 6 home learning will include reading, spelling and maths including times.

Typical activities include:

  • Reading – daily for a minimum of ten minutes
  • Times tables – using Time Tables Rock Stars (all times tables up to 12x12)
  • Maths – Abacus weekly online games, consolidating current learning
  • Spellings – Year 5/6 spelling rules
  • Activities selected from the curriculum home learning grids (Year 5 only)

Additional Home Learning Activities

As we continue to assess the risk posed by COVID-19, our teachers are working on developing curriculum materials to minimise the disruption to learning in the event of a school closure or if pupils are needing to self-isolate. We appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning, whilst at home, is not necessarily going to be easy and so we have prepared perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support. Please begin with the week 1 materials from the point that your child is away from school and work through the activities sequentially.

Please contact admin@coombes.wokingham.sch.uk if you are having difficulties accessing any of these resources or require support with your child's learning.
