Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers

Over the last half term the children within our EYFS setting at Woodlands Primary School have been thinking lots about the story ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. After sharing the story, the children have engaged in many different projects relating to different sections of the story. As Educators, we have been enormously proud of the complex thinking the children have displayed about themselves, their homes and how they may differ to one another. Also planet Earth – moving onto space, under the sea, the human skeleton, ecology and how to best take care of living things on our planet! Through these interests the children have represented their ideas through a range of media and materials. They have developed their learning skills – resilience, independence, confidence, sharing, collaboration and learning to conversate with one another about their ideas. The children have learned lots about their own emotional and social behaviours through this too! Please take a look at the photos below to see a snap shot of the learning that has taken place!
