WK1 – PSHE -Respecting Ourselves and Others

In PSHE our learning focus has been RESPECT. We have been looking at our expectations of RESPECT as individuals, as a school and the wider community. We have explored how being treated with respect makes us feel and why it is important to show respect to others. As well as discussing the language and emotions we have given children an opportunity to test respect to each other whilst completing some difficult team challenges.

In addition to this all groups were introduced to their Science Enquiries and the children shared their thoughts on what their longitudinal studies might look like over the year. We will be doing more on this over the next few weeks.

The children also had their first session learning about British Values and how this is going to be approached in COSMIC sessions. The children will explore British Values using picture news which allows the children to discuss a recent news story linked to a question.

Years 1 and 2:

In this session we modelled to the children, how to show respect in the classroom and to respect each other. The children communicated about how they show respect to each other if they need someone to play with or if someone is talking to them by giving them eye contact. The children then thought about how to respect the classroom after an Art activity by tidying up and everyone should help to keep the classroom tidy.

In Year 2 we discussed differences people that like and do that are different from each other. We spoke about what we did at the weekends, what was our favourite subject and things we don’t like.

Years 4

With Year 4 we watched 2 videos of referees, one in football and one in rugby. We discussed the feelings and emotions when playing sports and the emotions shown towards the referee. We thought that in football the players were angrier and more aggressive towards the referee if he made the wrong decision. Whereas in rugby it was calmer and the players would listen to the referee and did not speak to him in an aggressive way. We discussed that respect needs to be shown in towards other people even if we don’t always agree with their actions.

Years 5:

We are thought about what it means to belong and how we can help people to feel that they belong. Have we all done enough to show new members of our class to make them feel like they belong. We talked about that showing them kindness and being friendly that might help them settle in, but also showing them respect that they might not want to always join in and be respectful to what they need.

Years 6: In Year 6 we looked at scenarios where you have to compromise to take on board the views of others and collaborate to achieve a goal. How does it feel to work with other people?
