At Chopwell Primary School, we believe that PSHE helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding to be confident, healthy, accepting and independent citizens. Pupils’ personal, social and emotional development can be encouraged by a supportive school ethos, where all are valued and encouraged, positive relationships are seen as important and there is a safe and secure school environment which is conducive to learning. Themed days and continuous high quality teaching will promote and enrich the experiences children have in PSHE.
The children have been looking at feelings this half term in PSHE. This week they looked at their worries. They were encouraged to write down their worry, say it out loud, think about how they could solve their worry, scrumple the worry up and throw it in the bin. The children said they felt much better!
Y3 have been looking at caring for the environment in PSHE. They went for a walk in their local community to look at some of the flowers they planted just after Christmas. They were very proud to have contributed to making their environment look even more pretty.
The School Council have been working hard this half term to reduce the amount of litter in our environment by taking part in a litter pick. The children have managed to achieve the bronze award for our 'Green Tree School' by doing this.
Here our some pictures of our balloon launch to celebrate our anti-bullying message of 'All Different, All Equal.'
The children in Y3 and 4 were visited by the dentist to link with our hygiene focus. The children learnt about the importance of keeping our teeth and mouth clean.
