Scroll down to see what Year 6 have been focusing on in PSHE so far this year.....
During our PSHE and Circle Time, we have been talking about thankfulness and respect. Every week we add responses from our circle time to our worship board to show how we and others have shown our Christian value this week. We also share our responses during our Friday worship assemblies.
A few photos of one of our circle time sessions....
We have been learning how to manage money with the help of 'Money Matters'. Mr Souter came in to talk and work with us. He appointed 3 children to be Money Mentors who will lead class activities in the Spring Term before Mr Souter returns before Easter to see what work we have done.
We had a visit from Chris who works for the NSPCC. He came to talk to us about keeping safe. We had some great thought provoking discussions about some really important issues.
Some of our class went to the Show Racism the Red Card event at Preston North End. They heard from PNE players about how the initiatives set up by the FA and schemes like this have helped to educate people and reduce racism within football. The message was it doesn't matter that we all look different on the outside - it's what is on the inside and how we are as a person that matters the most.
We also had a visit from a fireman from Penwortham Fire Station who came to talk to us about the importance of Road Safety including how to be safe on a bus, in a car and when riding our bicycles
Our Money Matters Mentors delivered a session and made us think about our future career paths and how to get there. In groups, we then thought about what qualities were needed for certain jobs and then created lists of possible interview questions for those jobs. We then had lots of fun role playing and acting out being the interviewer and interviewee.
Mr Souter came back in to do some more Money Matters work with us. This time the focus was on managing money, what was good and bad money borrowing and the cost of living. We look forward to him coming back to see us again in July!
The Fire Service came back in to see us to educate us about river safety. We learned the importance of keeping safe with us being so close to the River Ribble.
We had a visit from some magistrates from The Magistrates Court to talk to us about making the right choices. We learnt all about what happened inside the courtroom and even had a mock trial. We were the magistrates and had to decide if the defendant was guilty or not guilty. We also had to decide what his punishment would be!
