Curriculum – PSHE

At Cassiobury Infant and Nursery School we believe that the skills learned through our PSHE (Personal, Social and Heath Economic) curriculum will enable our children to be kind, caring and respectful members of our community, who demonstrate awareness, tolerance and understanding of themselves and those around them.  

Our PSHE curriculum links closely with our Learning Powers and aims to encourage resilience, teamwork, resourcefulness and reflection in all learners in our school.

Nursery and Reception

In Nursery and Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile where Personal, Social and Emotional Development makes up one third of the Prime Areas of Learning. Our PSED curriculum is interwoven across all seven areas of learning in addition to being taught in discrete sessions.  

PSED is broken down into three main areas of learning:

  • Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness 
  • Managing Feeling and Behaviour 
  • Making Relationships

Year 1 & 2

In Key Stage One we follow the ‘Jigsaw’ programme of PSHE which is divided into six topics of learning:

  • Being me in my World
  • Celebrating Differences
  • Dreams and Goals
  • Healthy Me
  • Relationships
  • Changing Me
Discovery Focus Week

Our PSHE learning in Discovery focus week was based around kindness. Year 2 visited Brunswick court to sing their harvest songs, Year 1 created kindness cards filled with positive messages and Reception and Nursery created paintings for the residents.

Wellbeing Week
During our termly Wellbeing weeks, the children’s learning will be based around:
Health and fitness
Mental health
Growth mindset
Team work and resilience
Each Wellbeing week, the children will also take part in a workshop. In Autumn term we were visited by A-Life and took part in a healthy living workshop.
Community Links
We have built a strong community link with local care home Brunswick Court. Year 2 visit the care home to perform for the residents twice a year and the residents then attend the Year 2 summer performance.
Sensory Garden
In Spring term, we are aiming to create a sensory garden for the children to access throughout the year. Planning and construction is currently underway so stay tuned…

Today in #CassInfPSHE we thought about how we can overcome obstacles to achieve our goals. We learnt that we can overcome challenges by taking them step by step 👣

We introduced some traditional games to the children today. They really enjoyed playing snakes and ladders-keep practising at home to support with counting and turn taking and having some good old family fun! #CassInfPSHE

Yesterday in #CassInfPSHE we made 'Stretchy Flowers' to represent how we always try to stretch our learning. They will remind us that it is important to stretch ourselves because it helps us to learn new things.
