Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 1, in a zip file based on Oliver Jeffers’ book ‘Here We Are’. This book will feed the curious minds of your pupils to discover what the Planet Earth is all about. This is a delightful journey into tolerance, respect and kindness. Visualisation and simple retrieval skills are covered in this unit. This unit could easily be extended into numerous more lessons including many incidental writing opportunities for descriptive settings, diary writing and letters. The book has endless possibilities for all year groups.
In this pack you will find 2 x whole class lessons (an hour-long for each – or you can split them); an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary focus; full planning using the KS1 Reading Domains; numerous tasks for you to choose from; and the word document texts all ready to print.
You will need to purchase this book to complete the unit. Please note that for our KS1 units, we provide a text extract that differs from the actual book. It is against copyright to take and reproduce the text/pictures directly from a published book, so we always try to use our texts for the units based on the original. We always recommend that teachers have at least one copy of the book and read the original text with their pupils, then switch to the amended version that is based on the original.
Please see the linked CLPE work for this text.
