PSHE at Bunwell Primary School
PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) is an important subject in primary school as it helps our children to develop the qualities and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, friends, family members and members of society. It teaches the skills necessary to navigate the wider world and stay safe.
At Bunwell, PSHE has always been an integral part of our curriculum, but since September 2020, we have been using a particular scheme to deliver it. Jigsaw is a whole-school approach and, in their own words, ‘embodies a positive philosophy and creative teaching and learning activities to nurture children’s development as compassionate and well-rounded human beings.’
The scheme is built around six puzzles, which are taught one per half term, in one lesson a week. All the lessons are age-appropriate and meet the needs of the children at their particular stage of development.
The units are:
Being Me in My World
Dreams and Goals
Changing Me (In some year groups, this unit includes learning about life cycles and human reproduction)
