Term 1 





Focus text - Here We Are 



In Year 1 we have used Oliver Jeffers' text to help us re-engage with school life after a prolonged period of time at home.  Jeffers wrote this heartfelt book for his son. It is thought provoking and enables children to make sense of their world and their role in it. He creates awe and wonder about the world we live in which helps us to truly appreciate our 'shared home' and the special people in our lives. 


In our writing, we wrote leaflets to an alien who has not visited planet Earth, explaining what he would be able to see and do here.

We reflected on our experiences during forest school to write our own poems, based on 'Out and About' By Shirley Hughes. 

We wrote notes for the new Reception children about how to live on Planet Earth. 

We learned the words to the song 'What a Wonderful World' By Louis Armstrong and thought about their meaning. We then considered all the things that we seen in the book and in our own lives to decide what we think is wonderful about the world and created our own version of the song.
