Unicorn

Welcome to Unicorn Class!

We are year 2. 

 
   

Beachcomber

 

We kick start our year with a science- based topic called 'Beachcombers'.

 

In English we will be studying non-fiction texts,  tongue twisters, narratives, letters, poetry and persuasion texts as well as creating our own.

 

 

In Maths, we will be exploring concepts surrounding addition and subtraction with two  two-digit numbers, multiplication and division linked to the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, statistics and measurement.

 

Science will play a big part in our first topic. We will begin by identifying a collection of beach items and sorting them into living and dead. We will be completing a number of investigations and using our findings to suggest answers to questions. We shall also study habitats and how these meet the needs of animals and plants, and learn about the food chains which exist within rock pools.

 

The fun doesn't stop there! We will also be exploring the features of a coastline, researching beaches of the past and the changes which have occurred, creating sand art and compiling our own presentations on the computers to share with you at our topic showcase event on 22nd October!

Get ready Beachcombers, it's going to be a good one!
