Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to Year 2's Class page! I am Miss Ducker, the Year 2 class teacher. On our class page, you will find lots of useful information, such as what we are learning in the current term and links to lots of helpful websites/games to enhance your child's learning. If your child happens to become ill and/or is unable to attend school, there is also a link below to 'Remote Learning' which will ensure your child keeps up to date with their learning whilst away from school.


If you have any questions or would like support with your child's learning, please send me a message via Class Dojo and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


Many thanks,

Miss Ducker


Important points of notice:

  • Our lovely teaching assistants, Miss Peterson and Miss Gillespie, are in our class every day to help us along our learning journey. Miss Peterson will be teaching Year 2 every Thursday afternoon.                                                                             
  • Each week we will have PE on a Monday afternoon so please ensure the children come to school in their PE kits. This term we will be learning Tennis skills.
  • Reading books will be collected in every Friday and a new reading book will be issued the following Monday.                    
  • Spellings will be sent via Class Dojo every Friday. The following Friday the children will have a spelling test. These spellings will include 6 words which follow the spelling patterns/alternate spellings focussed on in class for that week and 2 of the Y2 common exception words.
  • Homework will be sent out each week through Google Classroom. We will inform you when this is operating. The homework will be the maths skills practiced in the week as well as reading or SPAG tasks. This will be given out on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday. We ask that you support us by ensuring that all homework is completed to help the children with their learning.


Here are some websites you may find useful. Feel free to explore them and use them as you wish:

Katie Morag



In English, we have been exploring some of the Katie Morag stories by Mairi Hedderwick. We have enjoyed discovering the different characters. We have learnt that Mairi Hedderwick is very good at using her illustrations to add detail to her stories. We looked closely at the story being told through the pictures.

We have written character descriptions, made predictions, and asked lots of questions about the wonderful books in the series. We are making good progress with our writing as we continue to explore the exciting stories about the antics of Katie Morag.
