Our expectations of parental / school links…

We fully appreciate the vitality of building home/school links at Glen Hills. Homework and tasks will be given out at regular opportunities for your child in year 2. Please go to our Learning Environment and onto the year 2 page for many super links to sites which will assist both you and your child.

Reading with your child! Probably the most vital aspect of ensuring children get a love of books! Ideally, a little bit of reading together should be done every day.

Phonics – keep going through those sounds – in this section of the website, you will find phonics information for parents.

Working on numbers to 50. Counting on/back in 1s, 2s, 5s etc, playing ‘shops’, 3D shape hunting around the house, 10, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, times tables- the possibilities are endless!
