Reviewing our Life Skills Curriculum

We are very proud of the work we do to teach Life Skills at Westerhope Primary School. This includes promoting British Values, developing the children's Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural awareness and teaching them Personal, Social, Health, Economic  skills and discussing how these are used in the wider world. We constantly review and update our curriculum as a whole school team, listening to the views of our children, staff and leaders and informing our governors. Here are some reviews of this work:

Feelings

This half term, everyone in school is focusing on ways to stay Healthy in their Life Skills sessions. Understanding their own feelings, others' feelings, how they can cope with difficult feelings and how their feelings can be affected by the media. We feel emotional health is very important to the development of everyone of our wonderful pupils. Here are some videos used to support their understanding and links to give advice to parents about developing emotional health. 

Why Do We Lose Control of Our Emotions?

Simple, easy-to-understand whiteboard animation to help early Elementary-aged children gain an understanding of the way their brains work to recognize and manage their emotions. This is intended as a beginning resource to help children, parents, educators, and those who work with children to encourage mindfulness, empathy, and emotional regulation.

The Feelings Song

It's a song for children about feelings and emotions.
