Parents and Carers,

 

As a part of your child’s education at Hinstock Primary School, we promote personal wellbeing and development through Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.

I am writing to let you know that over the next five weeks your child’s class will be taking part in a variety of lessons which will focus on:

PSHE teaching will take place in a safe learning environment and is underpinned by our school ethos and values.

If you would like to find out more or discuss any concerns, we would urge you to contact us as soon as possible. The first lesson, on Friday the 18th of June, will focus on oral and personal hygiene as well as sun safety. 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Lines

I’ve found two activities today that I really hope you will enjoy! I’ve put it onto a PowerPoint, just in case you found it difficult to access. If you are struggling for time, have a look at both activities on the PowerPoint and decide which story you would like to focus on! I’d love to hear about your hero or your ways to prevent fears.

Today, we are looking at someone (and in some cases some people) who has/have allowed you to charge your phone, watch television, have a warm house and play on your computer! Please look through the PowerPoint about electricity and conduct the electrical hunt! The most important part is identifying how not having this electrical item (because of the lack of electricity) would affect your daily life. Please include lots of detail in the second column! Enjoy! Looking forward to seeing your work and hoping you take that moment to really appreciate past inventors!
