PSHE

The importance of children's physical and mental health

 

PSHE is vital in a child's education. As children return to school post-Covid19, we will slowly be transitioning the children back to a normal routine. Conversations in class may include meta-cognition, social interaction, emotions and self-regulation, worries, concerns and building up learning behaviours and rebuilding friendships and relationships within school. Not all children or classes will need every conversation, activity or intervention and teachers will observe children closely.

 

After consultation with all teachers, it has emphasised how fantastic the children of Long Row are. The children have settled into the 'new normal' brilliantly. PSHE lessons are planned through story books, art and class discussions and we will be focusing (age appropriately across the year groups) on the following this half term:

 

- Rules: Why they are important, how they keep us safe, what the children's responsibilities are for keeping themselves safe and who they can go to if they are worried or concerned.

- Emotions: Recognising different emotions, spotting triggers to their own emotions and in the older years regulating emotions. This is covered under the Governments guidance of staying mentally safe.

- Relationships: Predominantly done during play times, monitoring the children's friendships and different games to play, giving chance for children to re-establish friendships and make new ones in their class bubbles, including establishing teacher-pupil relationships.

 

Teachers are working hard to establish routines with the children and have quickly settled their classes into the school life. If you have any questions, please contact us via the school office, and we will endeavour to respond as quickly as we can.

 

Thank you for the continued support.

Mrs North

The units have been separated into half terms so each half term has a specific focus. 

The children are encouraged to engage in activities that promote an understanding of themselves as growing and changing individuals, and as members of a wider community, based on their own first hand experiences. These activities also encourage pupils to understand how their choices and behaviours can affect others.

PARENT LENDING LIBRARY

 

How it works

You or your child’s teacher may notice your child needs help with:

  • Behaviour
  • Social issues
  • Emotions
  • Anxiety or worries
  • Questions on puberty
  • Internet safety
  • Grief
  • Separation / divorce

 

We have started our collection of books, which aim to open up discussion with your child in a relaxed and informative way and/or give ideas and support. A synopsis of the books are available in the school office and online.

 

Teachers may offer a book or you can request one by speaking to your child’s teacher or the school office. The more books parents borrow; the more grant money we will receive to get more books for these and other categories.

 

Below is a link to the list and synopsis of books we have.

Due to the current circumstances, the parent group is on hold, however we are still looking for parents to join our Parent Group. 

 

The group will meet with Mrs North two - three times a year to:

  • Discuss PSHE and RSE
  • Help organise the parent lending library
  • Support the production of parent guidance
  • Put forward ideas and suggestions

 

How do I get involved?

Looking forward to seeing more of you...
