Living and Learning sessions
are held weekly, in class, to promote social and emotional aspects of learning and other areas of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). This half term we have two main themes, from our long-term plan
- Drug, alcohol and tobacco education (DATE)
- Keeping safe and managing risk
Our Staying Safe themed week
(w/c 04 February 2019), including Safer Internet Day
, will be part of this learning. More information will follow about this.
We begin the half term with a focus on manners and in particular interruptions. Children will consider what is a valid interruption, for example an emergency and what alternatives are there to interrupting? Children across school are encouraged to use our brain, buddy, boss system to try to avoid interruptions. This means they would first think themselves. Then, they could try asking a friend and the final option would be to ask the adult. This encourages the children to become independent and take responsibility.
Here are the weekly Living and Learning statements, for this half term, to support this learning.
- I don’t interrupt (with my mouth or my hand).
- I can make things better.
- I know what a drug is.
- I know how to seek help.
- I make safe choices, including online.
- I can assess my own risks.
