Welcome to Year 1/2!

At Pinders Primary School, each of our classrooms are themed around a book. The Year 1/2 classroom is called the Enchanted Forest and is themed around the book 'Into the Forest' by Anthony Browne. The story involves a boy taking a walk through the forest to his Grandma's house, meeting a variety of fairy tale characters along the way! We have enjoyed reading and doing activities based on this book during our first half term.

During the first half term in Year 1/2 our topic has been Enchanted Forest. Lots of our learning has been focused on different traditional tales! In our English learning focussed on the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and re-wrote the story. In DT created fairy tale moving pictures. In our Humanities lessons did map work, focussing on the journeys that different fairy tale characters make!
In Maths this half term the children have been working on number and place value. In our Science learning we have been investigating different materials. In Art we have enjoyed working with paint - mixing colours, tinting and creating work based on famous artists!
Our grown ups also enjoyed coming to school this half term to work with their child during our Inspire event which was focussed on our class book!
During this half term some children went to watch the production of 'The Gruffalo's Child' in Sheffield - a story set in a forest!
Also this half term, children in Year 1/2 visited The Rainbow Factory in Leeds, where their day was filled with exciting activities focussed on traditional tales! Take a look at our fantastic trip below!
