Here We Are

"We’re glad you found us as space is very big... you're never alone on Planet Earth". Year 5 have been re-connecting and re-engaging with school life through studying the book ‘Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth’ by Oliver Jeffers. They explored the themes of: Earth’s place in the wider universe; the Earth’s environment; our place on the planet as humans; how we, as humans, relate to each other; other species and our responsibility towards them; belonging and community; and our responsibility as world citizens.

Year 5 reflected on their own favourite places and wrote some wonderfully evocative descriptions, which included Legoland, Sherwood Pines, Clearwater Beach, the farm, their own home, and McDonalds!.
