This year your child may well come home talking about Jigsaw, and in particular the different characters or chime bars we have in all classes that the children work with. Jigsaw is an exciting and new Personal, Social and Health Education approach that we will be using in school and it updates the previous SEAL (Social and Emotional Attitudes to Learning) programme.
Jigsaw still follows the idea of a different theme each half term, similar to SEAL ideas but with new titles and values.
Autumn 1 – Being Me in My World
Autumn 2 – Celebrating Difference
Spring 1 – Dreams and Goals
Spring 2 – Healthy Me
Summer 1 – Relationships
Summer 2 – Changing Me
All classes will work on the same themes, but taught from an age appropriate level. Just as with SEAL lessons, Jigsaw is based around circle time and developing emotional and social awareness as well as teaching children about focus and concentration for learning.
