KS1 & KS2 PSHE 20 x Full Sessions [COMPLETE SET]

KS1 & KS2 PSHE 20 x Full Sessions [COMPLETE SET]

The download comprises 20 X PSHE lessons/sessions that can be used multiple times with the same group. The method uses a selection of debate and discussion activities to explore PSHE issues for KS1 and KS2 students. This download is designed to be a significant component of any primary school's PSHE provision. A demo of the method can be found here: https://goo.gl/DrcSqv [though the content is not relevant to PSHE, it shows how the approach works] The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind. In this context: 'Philosophy Boxes' represents a more student-centred 'debate & discussion' approach to PSHE issues. The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats]. The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes. The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity. The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227 A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86 This PSHE course is based around the topics listed on the BBC Bitesize Resources for KS1 & KS2 PSHE (their content can be used alongside these resources to bolster your PSHE provision, though this download does not require additional preparation or resources) [http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/zqtnvcw]

Body confidence

Body confidence

The intervention - is divided up into 7 sessions, covering different aspects of the programme. The student pack - contains between 19 - 24 worksheets which enable the student to develop skills, log their thoughts and feelings and to form the basis of the discussions.The facilitator pack - accompanies the student pack contains roughly 35 - 40 pages which support the worksheets, suggesting what to discuss, which issues to cover and how to encourage good debate.AIMS OF INTERVENTION This intervention programme centres around body image, negative perceptions and media influences. The media more than at any other time holds a power and influence on how young people see themselves and present themselves. The programme considers; how they see themselves, how they are affected by how they look, who influences them, the negative and positive media messages and how they can regain their strength and self worth. FACILITATOR NOTES The intervention can be a challenging one for students and for facilitators because when we look at the evidence we have all been affected by it to some degree or another. So i would say look at the facilitator booklet and consider all the points it raise, plus do some research before you begin the programme which will make the whole course more relevant. REFERRAL CRITERIA I think every student would benefit from this intervention but if that isn’t possible then the following; Reported issues with diet, Significant purposeful weight loss Repeated flouting of the school’s uniform codeBASIC OVERVIEW OF THE INTERVENTIONS1.Labels What do they think of themselves, what do others think and how that all makes them feel. 2.Feelings How self aware are they? Have they been bullied, teased or ridiculed; how do their feelings affect their behaviour?3.Influences Who and what influences how they feel and act and how does this affect their lives and choices.4.Negative Media Media influences and how they can impact and influence the individual and society in general.5.Positive Media Taking a fresh look at the media and how some are trying to normalise images and go against the current trend.6.Stronger Getting students to view themselves in a more positive light, looking at positive influences and how confidence manifests itself.7.Progress A review of what progress has been made and how they look at themselves and portrayed images.

ABCD - Achieving Behaviour Change Decision Log Sheet

ABCD - Achieving Behaviour Change Decision Log Sheet

This is a modified version of the ABC model which is used in a wide range of school and clinical settings to modify undesirable behaviour. It is used by staff to help them reflect on the environmental triggers for behaviour for individuals and whole groups or in targeted behaviour interventions for whole people What is different about this:The language encourages reflection on self and behaviours rather than blaming someone else. The emphasis on the language is “you” and your behaviour and the choices made. This is very important because bad stuff happens to everyone and those people who mindfully respond to situations generally get a better outcome for themselves and others. Those who externalise their problems “so and so upset me” rarely change their behaviour because they have a ready-made excuse. The drip drip drip of focus on “your choice” “your behaviour” is the only means I know of helping them realise they may not have control over what happens to them but they can control how they respond.The other main difference is that there isn’t just ABC – antecedents, behaviour, consequences but also D. Decision. When things have gone wrong in a situation it is tempting for everyone to do an autopsy. This isn’t helpful. The events are already “gone” and one the slab (to continue the metaphor). D is the “what next” “do something different” it could be setting a personal target. Or if things have gone well, encourage reflection on what well and making it “even better”. If this is about trying something different then try to change one behaviour at a time. So this takes the analysis from the past into trying to make future actions better or even better next time.

The key aims of these books are: - to demystify counselling and psychotherapy so that it is more appealing and accessible to young people; - to destigmatise emotional and mental health problems so that young people are better able to accept help; - to encourage young people to embark upon their own healing journeys, equipped with the sense that there is a way forward.HariAs fifteen year-old Hari approaches his mock-GCSEs, he begins to experience anxiety attacks aggravated by his fears of failure to meet his own and his family's expectations. When intermittent feigned illness escalates to the point where he runs out of an exam and hides in a cupboard, Hari agrees to see Steph, the school counsellor. Together they explore ways for Hari to manage his own anxiety and be less critical of himself.AvaSixteen year-olds Ava and Jade are obsessed with food, calories, and staying thin. Pleased with the many compliments they receive they push themselves into anorexia. Ava's mother is alarmed by her daughter's weight loss and forces her into therapy with the school counsellor, Steph. However after only two sessions Steph touches a raw nerve, Ava storms out and refuses to continue. Only when Jade is admitted to hospital does Ava return to therapy, where she begins to understand the causes of her anorexic tendencies. LexiFollowing the traumatic break-up of her parents' marriage, Lexi feels excluded and unloved. Unable to cope with her emotions, she self-harms, cutting herself with a scalpel. When her boyfriend splits up with her the self-harm intensifies until Lexi's sister persuades her to see Steph, the school counsellor. Together they explore some of the experiences that have shaped the way Lexi responds to negative emotions, and though the challenges she faces remain the same, as the therapy continues she learns how to experience those emotions without self-harming.Essential Support GuideThe essential support guide, designed to be used alongside the Graphic Lives novels, provides therapists and counsellors with a range of support resources, linked to the stories and the issues covered.
