PSHE NEWS 2021/2022
Supporting our Children with PSHE
All the children have settled back to the daily routines in school and the teachers have supported their well-being through weekly PSHE lessons. We are teaching and discussing subjects within our curriculum which involve family structures, feelings about the wider world and changes in our world now. These lessons encourage class discussions and we are all working together to develop their understanding of personal, social, health and emotional aspects in our children's lives.

At the end of September, Year 6 had a visit from HSBC Bank for a financial workshop called 'The Super Supper Challenge' which focused on healthy eating, as well as staying within a budget. Year 3 also had a virtual financial workshop called 'Money Throughout the Ages' which taught the children about the history of money and the importance of trading.
PSHE lessons have all been linked to the Children's Rights and references made during each lesson.
We are thinking of all our families at this very challenging time for us all due to the spread of the Coronavirus. We hope that you are all keeping well and following the Government advice on staying safe. The Government website https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus provides information on how you can protect yourselves from this virus and also useful guidance on financial matters and a range of other issues that may be of concern to you
Discussing Coronavirus in PSHE lessons.
Teaching about hygiene routines, how bacteria and viruses affect health and recognising illness is a part of the Health Education aspect of PSHE education at all key stages. At the beginning of this school year all classes have had a number of lessons and remote assemblies in this area. From what Corona virus is to how to wash our hands properly. We have all discussed how Corona virus and its affects can make us feel emotionally. Regardless of their age, this can be a difficult time for children. Some may react right away, while others may show signs of difficulty later on. How a child or young person reacts can vary according to their age, how they understand information and communicate, their previous experiences, and how they typically cope with stress.
