What is PSHE Education?
PSHE Education is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives – now and in the future. As part of a whole-school approach, PSHE Education develops the qualities and attributes our children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
Bromet Primary School follows the Jigsaw Programme to teach PSHE to our children.
Jigsaw brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development. A variety of teaching strategies are used and we are mindful of each child’s preferred learning style. Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike. There is a Weekly Celebration that highlights a theme from that week’s lessons across the school, and encourages children to try to reflect that learning in their behaviour and attitudes.
As a class we entered a competition run by John Lewis to draw a ‘special person’ Kika, Aaron M and Sophia’s pictures were chosen to be in the window!
To finish off our Relationships Unit in Jigsaw we wrote about people who are special to us.
The children have made some amazing Family Trees/Important People in Their Life Posters!
