On Tuesday 7th May, Year 7 and 8 Pupils experienced a range of PSHE sessions. These sessions were designed to help pupils to gain the skills, knowledge, and understanding they need to lead healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.
Year 7 pupils started the day with a session led by Miss Capper on ‘Wellbeing’ this included some interesting discussions on healthy eating. They went on to consider the importance of ‘Relationships’ with Mrs Kemp. The pupils considered what qualities and skills they have in a ‘Careers’ session with Mrs Kitchener. They enjoyed a game of ‘Who am I?’, please see the photos below.
Year 8 pupils had a great session on ‘Finance’ in the morning with Mrs Burge. They went on to consider different types of jobs and the skills needed to be successful in them in a ‘Careers’ session with Mrs Longmore. Some of the pupils created a mini role play where they were interviewed for the job they would like to do. Please see the photos of them below. In their third session, they considered the importance of ‘Mental Health and Well Being’ with Mrs Jovanovic.
Pupils in Years 7-9 will have PSHE lessons as a timetabled part of their curriculum from September in addition to the many aspects that are taught cohesively within their current lessons. Years 10 and 11 will continue to receive their PSHE teaching through their GCSE curriculum.
