Every week classrooms are filled with discussions, debates, and philosophical conversations as PSHEE (personal, social, health and economic education) takes place.
They are constantly developing problem solving, resilience, team work, independence, creativity, curiosity and perseverance. This is taught through specific PSHEE lessons so they can see how these apply to their lives and those of others.
Through PSHEE all children are developing the opportunity to ask big questions, learn that their ideas are valuable and important and that they can make a difference to the world around them. Children recognise that it’s OK to disagree with their peers and that there are ‘no right or wrong answers.’ They learn to ‘argue and discuss without getting cross and angry!’ In an ever-changing world we are going to need to develop articulate problem solvers, creative thinkers and resilient learners.
Next time you talk to your child about his or her learning, please ask what they have been doing in PSHEE – you will probably be surprised.
