Wilstead Primary School Learning for Life


Home Learning

Home Learning

At Wilstead Primary School, we believe that opportunities for Home Learning can support a child’s development by providing opportunities for consolidation and reinforcement of skills learned at school.  We believe that by providing homework, we allow parents to have an active role in their children’s education, and that we allow children to develop the skills of responsibility and self-discipline.  


We provide all children with an email address, through which they can access home learning using the GoogleClassroom suite.  Much of the homework set will be accessed through apps such as MyMaths, TTRockstars and PurpleMash.  This gives children instant feedback and provides teachers with valuable insights into the children's strengths and areas for a development.  As a guide, you can expect the following weekly homework to be set:


EYFS: Speed sounds, word reading and number activities

KS1: Daily reading, spellings and maths

KS2: Daily reading, spellings and maths

Year 6:  Subject mastery activities using CGP books

Logins to online learning resources

The school subscribes to a number of online learning resources, which can be accessed at home. It is essential that children and parents have access to the relevant login details from the start of the school year so that they are immediately available in the event of a closure.
