The Landy and Friends series engages children in diverse, real life activities through the lovable, animated characters of Landy (a 1956 Series 1 Landrover) and Fender (a 1999 Defender). There are 8 story books in the series and they can all be bought here.
“Our Year 1 classes began to think about Land Rovers following the arrival of the first Landybook as a ‘WOW’ moment. The four classes then studied Land Rovers around the world and the various roles that they undertake: medical, engineering, rescue, police, fire fighters, aid workers, environmental…”
The children loved the book about the farm and we brought in an old Land Rover for the children to sit in and see.They wrote three songs about Landy And Fender and took an assembly for their parents.
All in all the children studied the Landybooks for over half a term and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The theme particularly excited the boys who were keen to read and write about Land Rovers.
These are great books that excite all our children and led to some fantastic learning!”Elisabeth Carney-Haworth, Head Teacher of Torpoint Infant School
