Welcome to the Peacocks class webpage!
Welcome to our class page. We hope to give you a snap shot of all the wonderful things we have been doing throughout the year in Peacocks. Our curriculum guides below gives you more information on what the children will be learning about over the each term.
Please also make sure that you are checking your emails for current information and that your child is logged into their Google Classroom, as this will be our main platform for communication this year and will be where you will be able to find more details on remote learning as and when it is needed. Your child will also be able to contact me directly from Google Classroom (or parents can on their child's behalf). Parents are able to contact me through the school email address at firstname.lastname@example.org for either an emailed response, or to arrange an outside socially distanced meeting at a time of mutual convenience. Please also feel free to approach a member of the team for a conversation, from a safe distance, at pick up time or to pass on any information at drop off time.

As the term progresses, the children's learning will be added below for you to enjoy and discuss with your children at home.
As part of our Extreme Earth topic we created our own volcano 3D structures. In our Forest School session we thought about the landscape around volcanoes and added these to our structures using things we could fine to represent them. In Art we looked at the works of Margaret Godfrey and this inspired us to create our own volcano artwork by laying tissues paper.
Happy Diwali! from Peacocks
We enjoyed creating some rangoli patterns on the playground using chalk.
Stone Age Day September 2021
Despite the weather changing our outdoor plans for the morning we still managed to enjoy a great day of Stone Age activities. We made our own cave artwork, jewellery, weapons and shelters. Once the rain stopped we managed to enjoy time around the firepit with Mrs Pearson. In the afternoon we learnt so much from our museum visitor, who brought along some ancient artefacts for us to handle.
Some of our memories from last year...
Christmas Themed Science Day
We had a great time making our rainbow jars, dissolving candy canes, making hovercrafts move and fizzing Christmas trees.
Remote Learning Spring 2021
We continued to work hard during the lockdown and here are some examples of our fabulous work.
Take One Book: Alice in Wonderland
We had a fantastic week exploring the text 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' written by Lewis Carroll. In Maths, we went on a 'numberland' hunt and had to solve different equations in our groups. We also helped the White Rabbit to tell the time. In English, we wrote descriptions of what Alice saw when she looked through the keyhole and character descriptions. We also made our own jam tarts, learnt how to play chess, created our own tower of cards, played pin the grin on The Cheshire Cat and learnt how to play croquet!
In Science, we have been learning about plants. We created a double page spread to present all our information.
