Y2 Peacock Class
We are Peacock Class.
Welcome to Peacock Class.
We are Peacock Class, a group of 30 children ready to make ourselves and those around us proud.
We can not wait to share our achievements and love of learning with you.
Meet our pupil council representatives.
Our topic this term is.... Into the woods!
We are excited and ready for lots of learning opportunities that will see us reading traditional and new stories, become authors and explore the wonderful world around us.
Into the forest.
This half term we will read the story; Into the forest by Anthony Browne. We will also learn about animals and their habitats in science.
We took our learning outside the classroom and visited Sherwood Forest where we had a wonderful day using the great outdoors to help with our topics.
We hunted for habitats and got dirty creating homes for foxes, hedgehogs, bats, rabbits and squirrels. Do you know the names given to these animals homes?
We also took a walk into the deep, dark forest and used our senses to describe what we could hear, see and touch when in this wonderful outdoor classroom.
We were helped with our descriptions by using blindfolds to explore our sense of touch, creating magic potions to explore our sense of smell and finally our sight by creating natural colour pallets.
We had a wonderful day and cannot wait for our trip to inspire some amazing writing over the next couple of weeks.
Peacock Class Remember: We are making poppies for our whole school remembrance project.

Once upon a time blogging day.
We enjoyed dressing up as our favourite traditional characters for our blogging day.
We were incredibly busy creating our own what am I riddles about the character we chose to be and designing our story paths for others to use for story telling activities.
We also worked as a team to use the characters we were dressed as to create new mixed up traditional stories.
