At Smithdown Primary School, through our ethos of ‘Together We Grow’, we aim to develop the whole child to prepare them for the future. Through the teaching of PSHE, we believe in modelling key skills of sharing, turn taking and caring about and respecting others. The children learn the skills for keeping themselves healthy and safe and for behaving well. They have opportunities to show they can take some responsibility for themselves and their environment. The children begin to learn about their own and other people’s feelings and become aware of the views, needs and rights of other children and older people. We also teach SRE in an age appropriate way that prepares children for the future. As members of a class and school community, they learn social skills such as how to share, take turns, play, help others, resolve simple arguments and behave in a supportive way. They begin to take an active part in the life of their school and its neighbourhood. As the children move into key stage two, they learn how to make more confident and informed choices about their health and environment. They also learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and ideas, and as members of their communities. This is achieved both indoors and in the outdoor environment through Forest School activities and placing high value on the role of parents in their children’s learning.

Today in PSHE we have been thinking about our dreams and goals for the future. Not just about our jobs but about what kind of person we want to be and what we want our lives to look like - we did some visualisation and then drew it in our dream cloud! ☁️ #smithdownpshe
