Here we are- Oliver Jeffers

At the start of the autumn term, we are all going to be working on a back to school project linked to Oliver Jeffer’s book, ‘Here we are’. 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. We 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.

Look out for updates on our Twitter page on our progress with this project. We look forward to sharing the final project with our whole school community on Friday, 18th September.
