We will be taking part in Children's Mental Health week from the 1st to the 7th February with a focus on wellbeing. Each class is invited to complete the 'one piece at a time' activity over the course of the week (available to download above or you can collect a paper copy from outside school) with the aim being to complete a range of activities linked to physical and mental wellbeing. Please can you also send us a photo of your smiley face to the office or your class teacher so that we can create some digital artwork. There are a range of useful videos from the BBC below which you may wish to watch with your child, including some new Supermovers videos.
At Trotts Hill School, we believe that personal, social and health education (PSHE) is crucial in order to enable our children to become healthy, safe, independent and responsible members of society. Our PSHE curriculum aims to help all children understand how they are growing and changing, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues which arise in school, our local community and the wider world. There is a focus on well-being and understanding of the importance of self-care and preservation. Our aim is to ensure that Trotts Hill is a supportive, stimulating and caring school, which has high expected standards of behaviour and manners. Our school behaviours and attitudes to learning are underpinned by our whole school values (PRIDE) and learning behaviours, which are taught through PSHE lessons and whole school assemblies. These values, along with awareness of wellbeing and positive behaviour, combine to create a successful learning environment throughout our school.
For a full and detailed overview of the learning across each year group, including specific learning objectives, please contact your Key Stage Leader or Mrs Wilby, the subject leader.
"Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. All schools should teach PSHE, drawing on good practice, and this expectation is outlined in the introduction to the proposed new national curriculum." (Gov UK)
