PSHE

What is PSHE?

PSHE is personal, social, health and economic education. This is where children learn about their emotions, about social interaction, how to be healthy and many more valuable life lessons. At MSJ, we not only want our children to become the best learners they can in order to achieve their fullest potential, but to be the most responsible citizens possible. Each topic has a citizenship element that runs through it in order to build on their responsibilities in their community and the wider world.

Our PSHE curriculum has 4 sections: 

- Safety

- Physical Health and Hygiene

- Mental Health & Wellbeing

- Equality & Diversity

What is RSE?

RSE is Relationship and Sex Education. In this area children learn about relationships including friendships and families as well as learning about how their bodies grow and change.

In Key Stage 1, children learn all about being safe with their bodies, here is a video the children watch to help them to understand!

How do we teach about emotions?

A fantastic book that we use throughout school (though mostly for EYFS and KS1) is The Colour Monster. This teaches children about different emotions, giving them a colour to relate to each in order for them to understand what they mean and what makes them feel different colours / emotions. You can use this at home too to help your children understand emotions, here is a link to the story:

Other useful books

We often use books to teach the different aspects of PSHE, as children can relate to the stories and characters. Here are some good ones:
