CLPE's Recovery Curriculum for Primary Schools - Teaching Notes for Here We Are: Notes for Planet Earth by Oliver Jeffers


Our expert teaching team have created a FREE, 2 week long, whole school unit of work for Early Years through to Year 6. We want to encourage a sense of community across the entire school, to reflect on the last few months, and also help your whole school look forward to the future in a positive way.

The notes will use the book Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth by Oliver Jeffers (HarperCollins) because it is perfect for children of all ages and the unit will help schools engage their whole community with literacy learning. At the end of the unit we have planned an activity where pupils, staff and even parents can share their own notes for living on Planet Earth, supporting everyone to move forward positively.




  • Register to receive this unit
  • We will send you the FREE teaching unit so you can plan and prepare to use it in your class or school at the beginning of the autumn term
  • The unit ends with an opportunity for children, teachers and even parents to produce their notes for a better world. Share your work with us across our social channels using #CLPEWordsForTheWorld.


We're delighted to announce that we have partnered with Peters to give schools 35% off their copies of Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth throughout the summer and autumn term.
