At All Saints’ we use an engaging resource called Jigsaw to support our children’s Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole Primary School from Reception through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.
SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development opportunities are mapped throughout. All of these pieces of learning are brought together to form a cohesive picture, helping children to know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people the world.
How does Jigsaw PSHE work?
Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme at the same time, generating a common focus for children across the school. It is also relevant to children living in today’s world and deals with issues such as body image, cyber bullying and internet safety.
There are six ‘Puzzles’ in Jigsaw that are designed to progress in sequence from September to July:
- 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
