Home-Schooling - Learning & Well-being For You and Your Child

January 2021

Should your child need remote learning from home, the learning will now all come via See Saw which you all have logins for. Activities will be posted daily, going live early that morning so children can start whenever needed. If you have any problems with accessing See Saw, please contact us straight away so we can fix this and no learning time is lost.


It is our intention to ensure any learning at home should match as closely as possible what would / is delivered in school. Teachers will provide learning as outlined below. This will be sufficient to fill at least 3-4 hours, depending on your child's age. We have provided a suggested timetable of how you could use the resources posted daily, but please make this work to best suit your situation at home - this is merely a suggestion. It is however important to keep a structure or routine to the week, as children will find this easier to engage with.

Remember children will learn best when their mental well-being is strong. If you have any concerns, please contact your child's teacher.


Teachers will be reviewing children's work and giving feedback regularly, as they would in school. This will mostly be given through the See Saw app. When teachers deem this to be the best way to deliver that piece of learning, there will be live lessons. These will be delivered and invites sent out through Office 365, but announcements also made on See Saw. Please remember the expectations for these sessions sent out to you by Mrs Whiting. 


Abbeywood families are amazingly supportive and we always work in partnership to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children. Please use us if needed. We are there for you.

Oracy + Talk for Learning


As I am sure you are well aware, talk is used constantly in our classrooms to deepen our children's learning. Visitors to our school are always amazed at how highly skilled they are.

We would love it if they could keep this going as much as possible while learning at home with you. Please see the document below that shares some ways to use discussion to ensure your child achieves their best over the coming weeks with you.
