The Jigsaw Approach
From September 2014 we are using a new scheme in school for teaching PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education). You can read more about it here: https://www.jigsawpshe.com/jigsaw-closer-look/ This approach combines a range of curriculum learning including PSHE, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development into a comprehensive scheme. It is a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. Every Tuesday morning, in the assembly, A member of the leadership team introduces the whole school focus for adults and children alike.
The six puzzles are as follows:
Autumn 1: Being Me in My World
Autumn 2: Celebrating Difference (Including anti-bullying)
Spring 1: Dreams and goals
Spring 2: Healthy Me
Summer 1: Relationships
Summer 2: Changing Me

Film week – 7/11/2014
Last week, as part of film week Reception to Year 6 all took a trip to Cineworld in Bradford to watch the film Moshi Monsters. It linked with our anti bullying campaign and Celebrating Differences theme that we are learning about in school. The children then went back to school to discuss it and they will continue the work throughout the year.
