10 hours of new PSHE lessons on some of the most pertinent and pressing issues facing students in 2018/19.

The United Nations

The United Nations

After the atrocities of the Second World War (millions of Jews were killed and many others) some countries got together and decided that something like that could not happen again. They formed the United Nations. The United Nations drew up a list of basic Human Rights (1948) that everyone should be entitled to – this is called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These worksheets help the students to discuss what they consider essential to living and compare their thoughts to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. In addition they look in detail at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and discuss whose responsibility it is to uphold these

Types of Government Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Politics Elections

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Types of Government’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Democracy Drop Down Day

Drop Down Day / Off Timetable Day Pack - A set of 6 lessons to cover a Drop Down Day (6 hours) all about democracy, elections and voting. The Drop Down Day was put together for Year 9 originally, but all the resources are editable and well-differentiated so it could be used with any year group KS4 / KS3 with a tweak or so. The overall theme for the series of KS3 Drop Down Days was ‘British Values’, so this is just one in a series of six which ran throughout the year. The day works especially well if you can align it with voting for the student council or prefects. At the end of the sessions, after carefully studying the democratic process, the students could come down to the hall to cast their vote. There is much focus on British Values throughout the lessons as this was planned to ensure thorough coverage of Citizenship and SMSC.

The overall theme for the series of KS4 Drop Down Days was ‘Independent Living’, so this is just one in a series of six which ran throughout the year. The day works especially well if you can have a key speaker from the Finance Industry (the school’s finance director will do) to kick off proceedings; just someone to emphasise how important financial literacy is and how it can lead to lucrative careers. Intertwined with the money and independent living skills gained by students throughout the day are reminders of their responsibilities as consumers to spend ethically. There is much focus on young people’s rights and responsibilities throughout the lessons as this was planned to ensure thorough coverage of Citizenship and SMSC too.

Jury Duty worksheets

Jury Duty worksheets

I created these worksheets to support my lessons on Ancient Greece and how they influenced modern day democracy but these sheets could be used as stand alone lessons. Included: Sheet with information on the alleged crime and those involved. There has been an alleged robbery at a man’s house. He has accused his neighbour of committing the crime. The accused’s alibi is his best friend , Sid, who has been to prison before. Who will you believe? Jurors: Three jurors all of who know one of the people involved. This sheet will help the children to understand the need for an unbiased jury. Children will discuss the jurors and decide whether or not to keep them on the jury Questionnaire: I used this with a colleague who had experienced jury duty. They came into our lesson and the children used the questions on this sheet to interview them on their experience. Statements: Brief statements from the three people involved. Children can use these to help form their opinions on the accused. Verdict/Truth: Most children I have used this lesson with come to the conclusion that Mark (the accused) is guilty. They are always surprised to know that he was set up by the man who accused him. The children find out that even if Mark was guilty, he would more than likely have walked free due to lack of evidence. This always ignites interesting conversations about how fair our legal system is.
