Autumn 1


In English this half-term we are using a fabulous book called 'Here We Are' as stimulus.

This heartfelt and thought-provoking book from Oliver Jeffers is dedicated to his son, Harland and was written in the first two months of Harland’s life. It was inspired by Oliver’s desire to make sense of the world for his son, but is also a gift to all children at this time, helping them to make sense of their world and their role in it.  This half-term, we will be delivering teaching and learning activities and experiences based upon this book and the lesson ideas created by created by CLPE (Centre for Literacy In Primary Education). CLPE chose this book to build a sequence of work around, because it provides a powerful vehicle for children to reflect on and make sense of the world we are all living in. The words and pictures work together to help children to understand their place in the world and to move forward together in a positive and constructive way.


After completing our unit 'Here We Are' we will focus on securing key learning objectives from Year 4. We continue to complete a piece of extended writing each week, using 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce as stimulus for ideas.
