Home learning


At Westlands Primary School we set tasks for pupils to complete at home. We believe that the development of independent learning skills is an important element of children’s academic growth and something which will serve pupils well as they progress through their academic careers. We also encourage parents and carers to talk with their children about their current learning and to ensure that set tasks are completed.


Home Reading

We believe that the most important way that families can support their children’s development is to read with them regularly and talk about what they have read. Pupils will bring home a range of books for them to read with an adult at home. We hope that families will find the time to listen to their child read on most evenings.


Google Classroom 

Homework will be set on Google Classroom for year 1 - 6. Tasks will be set to match the classroom learning and will look different for each year group. They will be set on a Friday and will need to be completed by the following Wednesday. 

You should have received your child’s log in for Google Classroom but if you haven’t or If you ever have any questions about your child’s home learning, please speak with their Class Teacher.
