PHSCE at St. Thomas'
At St Thomas’ CE we value a well balanced PHSCE curriculum. We understand the importance of enabling our pupils to leave our school well equipped to strive in the outside world. As a team we have worked hard to create a curriculum that is catered to our pupils. It includes the skills and knowledge we believe they need to accomplish this during their time with us.
Throughout each year our pupils will cover a range of skills related to each of the three focus areas in the PHSCE curriculum: relationships, health and wellbeing and living in the wider world.
Each lesson will have a focus area and a skill, each skill is usually introduced an inquiry question. e.g. ‘How do you know someone loves and cares for you?’ These questions often lead into: debates, acting out scenarios, creating posters as well as several other activities.
At times our lessons link to our Theme books and the characters within them. This can often enable our pupils to discuss challenging topics by relating them to the characters in our Theme books and the situations they have encountered.
To enable our pupils’ vocabulary to progress throughout their time at St Thomas’ as a team we decided each year group would have ten new words to learn each year. These ten words specifically relate to the skills they are learning as a class and ensure new vocabulary is being regularly introduced and developed throughout their time at school.
The skills being taught each half term can be found on the objective grids under the heading for each Theme book. The vocabulary for each year can be found on the skills, progression and vocabulary document.
