PSHE

One of Mrs Needhams roles as our learning mentor, is to teach PSHE across the school on a weekly basis. 

Yesterday, linking to our PSHE lessons, we had a special assembly by the NSPCC, in which children learned all about 'Buddy' their mascot. Children were also talked to about neglect, abuse and bullying. The assembly finished with the NSPCC explaining what children can do if they are worried and how to contact childline. A big thank you to the NSPCC for delivering such a powerful message in a child friendly way.

      

During Autumn term 2, Week commencing 13th November was Anti Bullying Week, therefore the main focus of our PSHE lessons will be bullying. We will be talking about; what is bullying, its impact and promoting difference and equality. 


Additionally, 12th November was Remembrance Sunday -  a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to protect and secure our freedom. Mrs Needham has been discussing with the children, the significance of this day. 


Another area that we have discussed in our PSHE lessons, is BBC Children in Need, which returns on 17th November. This year they are hoping to raise more money than ever before to help change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.   
  

Autumn Term 1 - The topic is 'New Beginnings', which is all about helping our children explore new things with confidence and on the run up to bonfire night, Mrs Needham will also be talking to the children about how to keep themselves safe with fireworks. 



 The NSPCC have launched a new video, called 'Share Aware,' which helps children understand the importance of not sharing personal information whilst online. The video can be found by clicking on the following;

Last half term, the theme was 'It's good to be me'. The children will be exploring how every individual is unique and special. She will also be helping the children to focus on the positive aspects of themselves to develop a sense of self worth and self esteem. In a recent lesson, children had great fun, interviewing each other, finding out what they are good at and what they enjoyed doing. 

During the first half term of the school year, she has talked to the children about bullying. This included: looking at different types of bullying, the effects of bullying and what you should do if you feel that you are being bullied. Additionally, the week before Bonfire night, she discussed with the children how to keep themselves safe.   After bullying, Mrs Needham has helped the children to understand the need to keep themselves safe whilst online. Talking about different ways you can access the internet, the dangers of giving our personal information online and what they should do if someone tries to find out information about them, raising awareness of 'Stranger Danger'.
