Here We Are
As part of our 'Recovery Curriculum' we have been reading 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.
It is an amazing story that reminds us that while the world around us may at times appear complicated it can be simple too.
Over the past fortnight, different aspects of the narrative have been thought provoking and it has generated some meaningful in-depth discussions. It has given us the opportunity to share our thoughts and ideas and muse over the fact that while we are all different "we are all people".
We have incorporated this story, to support our broad curriculum, using it as a starting point for a number of lessons including English, Geography, Art, PSHE, Computing and more.

Everyone has experienced and interpreted government guidelines and communications around Covid-19 in different ways.
We took the time to reflect on how the government guidelines were shared with the nation and discuss the different messages they used to target key audiences. We thought about our responsibility, both in the wider community and our school community, to ensure we follow the guidelines to keep each other safe.
Given a brief, the children worked in pairs to discuss and design a poster to inform others in our school of the rules they needed to follow and why. They used language and imagery to communicate their message in a clear, concise and effective manner.
Here are some of the creative slogans 6F thought up to combat Covid-19:
"Stop the spread like the Government said."
"We can win it...if we bin it."
"Listen and learn, don't spread the germ."
"Stop the spread or more will be dead."
"It's not a task to wear a mask."
We have been sharing any worries or concerns we may feel around Covid-19 and this led to us reflecting on anything else that may be troubling us.
In turn, we then spoke about things that are making us feel happy and suggested ways we can overcome our worries. It was a delight to see 6F supporting each other and being positive.
We displayed our ideas to remind us that is important to have a 'Growth Mindset'.
