Each timetable includes an hour’s learning on the core subjects of English and Maths, with sessions for other curriculum coverage and time for reading, breaks, snacks and daily exercise.
*Remember not all days will go to plan and your child might not always be able to sit and work quietly for the allocated time. If needed, allow your child/children to pick and choose which activities they would like to do, or encourage them to focus on just one piece of learning per day.
