Welcome toBanks Methodist SchoolLearning Together with Resilience and Faith

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)


In PSHE and RE we have been learning about relationships and friendships. Today we wrote about each of our friends. Owls is full of Love ❤️ and it shows how much we appreciate our friends. Then we completed 5 minute friendship plays with a partner. When the bell rang you moved to the next activity with a new friend. The children loved playing with other friends they wouldn’t normally play with and also learning new facts about them. 

Today we have been learning about life cycles and changes to us as humans.

Today we thought about the people who help us in school and outside of school. We worked in groups to sort them.

I am incredible because .... Today we thought about why we were incredible. We shared complements with our friends.

Today we learnt about road safety. We taught Jigsaw Jack how to cross the road.

PSHE isn’t a statutory subject in primary schools. This means that there is no set programme of study or learning objectives that pupils have to fulfil. 


Nevertheless, the Department for Education (DfE) makes it clear that PSHE is an ‘important and necessary’ part of children’s education.


Although the DfE doesn’t publish its own PSHE curriculum, it provides funding to the PSHE Association, enabling it to advise schools on how to develop their own PSHE teaching programme.


We use Jigsaw- Primary PSHE scheme of work including statutory Relationships and Health Education. 


In Year 1 and 2 we use Jerrie, Jo and Jack.
