Welcome to Year 1/2!
We have a mixture of Year 1 and Year 2 children in our classroom.
Class Teacher: Miss Vicky Mapp

At Pinders Primary School, each of our classrooms are focussed on a book. The Year 1/2 classroom is called the Enchanted Forest and is focussed on 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 will be reading this book in class during our first week back at school.
Check our Twitter page (@PindersPrimary) weekly for lots of photographs of our learning!
During the first half term in Year 1/2 our topic will be Enchanted Forest. Lots of our learning will be focused on different traditional tales! In our English learning we will be focussing on the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and writing our own versions of the story. In DT we will be creating fairy tale moving pictures. In our Humanities lessons we will be doing some map work, focussing on the journeys that different fairy tale characters make!
In Maths this half term the children will be working on number and place value. In our Science learning we will be investigating different materials.
During this half term some children will be going 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 will be visiting The Rainbow Factory in Leeds, where their day will be filled with exciting activities focussed on traditional tales!
