Home Learning

For home-school learning during EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSURES, please go to LEARNING GROUPS TAB for indvidual year group Home Learning resources. Thank you!

Please bear with us while we make some improvements to this page.
Thank you!

At The Winchcombe School, we believe that learning should be a partnership between school and home.

Homework is a chance to extend learning beyond the classroom and offers children the opportunity to:

  • become independent learners
  • practise and apply skills learned in the classroom
  • prepare children for secondary school

Reading

Regular reading with your child is probably the best help you can give to ensure they go on to be successful throughout school and beyond.

A child who learns to love reading will have a head start in life and be best placed to make the most of all that education has to offer.

We follow the Oxford Reading Tree

Making a regular routine of reading when your child can have your full attention will soon encourage them to read more often and become independent readers.  

We suggest a good 10-15 minute session of reading every day and ask that you complete the Reading Record after you have heard your child read.

Check out the tips in your childs' Reading Record for further advice on reading at home.
