Our new scheme of work is called ‘Jigsaw’ and offers a mindful approach to PSHE. Jigsaw is structured into 6 half-termly Puzzles (units), with the whole school studying different pieces of the same puzzle at the same time. The puzzles are sequential and developmental from September to July.
The units are as follows: Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me. Sex and relationship education is taught in Year 6.
Participation in whole school events such as sports day, performances and Summer and Christmas Fairs instil a sense of community in our children. Our ‘house’ system fosters opportunities to take social responsibility and promotes teamwork throughout the school. We also run an effective buddy system between our Year 6 and Reception children.
Opportunities to develop team building skills come through participation in Sporting events, various classroom activities, school journey and other educational visits.
