Collection of Children

Year 2 children arrive and leave school through their classrooms. If your child is going to be picked up by anyone other than the regular carer you need to inform the class teacher or the office before the end of school. If the class teacher is unaware of any arrangements they will need to phone you to confirm this is agreed. Please make sure the class teacher knows who will be picking up your child to save any problems at the end of the day.




Year 2 children should be encouraged and supported to read every night.

Homework will be set on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. These will often be a spelling task based on the spelling rule children have been learning and a Maths task to be completed in their homework book. 

Mid-term there will be a LEARNING LOG set. This will be related to one of the units of work that has been studied and may be completed in any style or using any media that the child prefers.

Home Learning

Please find below some home learning activities for English, Maths and Topic to keep you busy if you are currently in self isolation, or if our school does have to close during the Coronavirus outbreak. We hope you enjoy the activities and look forward to hearing about what you have done on your return to school. 


At Gledhow, we follow the White Rose Schemes of learning. You can find the termly plans on the Maths page of our school website. The fantastic team at White Rose Maths have put together a series of videos and worksheets for parents to access at home during school closure.
