Learning at Home – Suggested Schedule

We recommend that each school day you should spend the following amount of time on learning:

  • S1-3 pupils – 3 hours recommended
  • S4-6 pupils – 4 hours recommended

You can of course spend more time on learning.  Optional tasks and the ‘Idea of the Day’ can be used for additional learning. 

We recommend that you create a daily learning schedule to help structure your day.  Try to break learning up into blocks of 40 to 50 minutes and then take a 10 to 15 minute break.  The template below can be downloaded to create your own schedule.
