Here We Are
The children in our care will each have had unique experiences of and responses to the events of 2020. This has been a year of significant world events, disrupting and changing the ways of life of people across the globe. At Buntingsdale we used this unit of work across the whole school to help support the children in our school community to re-connect with each other and re-engage with school life.
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.
On this page you will find a celebration of the work that all classes have done through ‘Here we are’. We hope you enjoy looking at what your children are learning in school at the moment.
