PSHE @ Denbigh CPS 

Subejct Lead: Mrs Newby

At Denbigh the aim of PSHE education is to equip all pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. We encourage pupils to be enterprising and support them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing. A critical component of PSHE education is providing opportunities for children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future. PSHE education contributes to personal development by helping pupils to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It enables pupils to recognise, accept and shape their identities, to understand and accommodate difference and change, to manage emotions and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings. Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others will help pupils to form and maintain good relationships, develop the essential skills for future employability and better enjoy and manage their lives.

 

Our well-balanced curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.PSHE is taught alongside other subjects, including PE, STEM, RE, Topic work, Literacy and Mathematics, as well as an isolated subject. It is taught through lessons, assemblies, outside visitors as well as integrated into daily routines and expectations of the school

 

In the Early Years Foundation Stage PSHE is considered a prime area of learning and is known as Personal, Social and Emotional Development. This is taught to the children through both child initiated activities and adult-led teaching sessions, such as through class discussions, carpet time, small group work, circle time and games. The children are assessed in this area of learning against development matters statements.

 

In Key Stage 1 and 2 PSHE is taught through drug education, financial education, relationship and sex education (RSE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle. The school teaches PSHE alongside other statutory subjects forming integrated teaching. The school also facilitates PSHE themed assemblies as well as regularly fundraising on behalf of charity events and social and economic issues. PSHE is also enhanced through behaviour and rules, nurture groups, school council and the wider school ethos.School council will also play a big part in integrating PSHE into school life.

We had a lot fun completing some of Joe Wicks’s exercise challenges in the gym for Sports Relief. The children worked so hard and definitely had rosy cheeks after we were finished! #dpcspe #dcpspanda #dcpspshe ... See MoreSee Less

Year 1 had a very special visitor from Warburtons on a Friday. We looked at how to make a healthy, balanced sandwich using the five food groups. Thank you for our loaf of bread that we got to take home... yum yum! #dcpspanda #dcpstopic #dcpspshe #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Dragons did their bit for sport relief this afternoon. They took part in a HIIT workout. It was tough going at times, but we were rewarded with a lovely cool down at the end. #dcpsdragon #dcpspe #dcpspshe #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

This afternoon the Dinos made a mini beach complete with seaweed and coral, then they polluted them to compare the two environments. They all agreed that an unpolluted beach and sea is far nicer than a polluted one and discussed what we could all do to be eco warriors and reduce pollution, making the world a better place to live in. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsbritishscienceweek #dcpsstem #dcpscore #dcpsgeography #dcpspshe ...

We were discussing pollution this afternoon. Dragons made their own seaside environments. We talked about how they were clean, inviting and safe for us and animals. Then, much to the dismay of the class, they had to ‘pollute’ their environment. We then talked about the impact pollution has on our environment. We decided that we could help by making sure we recycle, and throw our rubbish away carefully. Ask us about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch! #dcpsdragon #dcpsstem #dcpscore #BritishScienceWeek #dcpsgeography #dcpspshe ... See MoreSee Less

Last week Year 1 became Tooth Defenders! We all practised brushing our teeth to get rid of plaque. The children also made their own set of teeth using mini marshmallows, cleaned teeth on the iPads, used shaving foam, flossed and chose which foods may be bad for your teeth. Well done Panda class. #dcpapanda #dcpspshe #dcpstopic #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 3 have been using our enterprising skills to start up our own dog selling business. We were put into teams and had to decide jobs for each member. These included making dogs, selling dogs, buying materials and treasurer. We had to give Mrs clarke a sales pitch to buy our dogs and convince her to pay as much money for them as we can get. We also had to buy the materials to make the dogs so we had to manage our budget because the team with the most money won! Check out one of our sales pitches!
