At Abbey School we believe that family time is special and we understand that modern family life is often busy with children attending out of school clubs and events With this in mind we prefer as a school to offer the following as opportunities for learning at home (otherwise known as homework)
Our home learning section will give you access to See Saw that we use as our main platform for our pupils home learning. Your child will be set tasks on See Saw that links to their learning and will either recall or continue to consolidate their learning.
Examples of home learning we may set on See Saw:
• Menus of half termly activities that can be worked through at your child’s own learning pace.
• Work to finish off that hasn’t been completed in lessons.
• Information gathering about a new topic.
• Set papers for example GCSE example test papers.
• Communication tasks e.g. learning to use new PECs symbols
We use Go Read (click Here) to help you record when you child has read to you. We send home books to read for pleasure and books that are decodable to develop your child’s reading. You may be given a link to an E Book for your child’s reading development.
Research states that 5- 10 minutes of reading together impacts on your child’s ability to read and recognise the written word. Research also shows that reading together helps strengthen relationships in families.
If at any point homework becomes a problem at home please do speak to your child’s class Team and we will find a solution to this together. If you require your child to have more homework or homework set on a more formal basis please do let their class team know who can adopt some shared approaches to suit everyone.
