Here We Are
We have begun this term with a whole school topic based on Oliver Jeffers's book Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth.
This project has been designed specifically for this time with activities for all ages within the school. It acknowledges that launching back into the usual timetable is likely to be
challenging and allows children the time and space to settle and share their experiences, thoughts, feelings, reflections and questions. Activities throughout the unit focus on children engaging in creative activities to develop them as readers and writers as well as using the book as a stimulus to help make sense of their experiences, their relationships with each other, their wider school community and the wider world around them. It has been planned by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE),
whose resources we use for many of our literacy units.
