Surprise visitor for Year 2

Our Year 2 students have been reading the story ‘Meerkat Mail’ by Emily Gravett, which tells the story of Sunny the meerkat, who lives with his enormous family in the Kalahari desert and goes to visit his mongoose cousins.

Our Year 2 students have been reading the story ‘Meerkat Mail’ by Emily Gravett, which tells the story of Sunny the meerkat, who lives with his enormous family in the Kalahari desert and goes to visit his mongoose cousins. The children enjoyed reading all about Sunny’s adventures so much that they had written letters to him in Africa inviting him into school!

Imagine their surprise when a real meerkat came to their classroom, along with a skink, tegu, royal python, cockroach, millipede and chameleon! Year 2 had a very exciting time getting to know all about the animals.

Thanks to Animal Experience who brought their amazing creatures to Peckover.
