The activities, lesson plans and assembly plans in this toolkit - which meet the learning objectives for the PSHE curriculum - will help children to think about who they are as a person, recognise what they are good at, identify positives things about themselves, learn from their experiences and set goals. There are also activities to support staff wellbeing.

Use this “Getting to know me” activity with your primary school class at the start of the school year to help pupils get to know themselves a little better and to set a goal that they would like to work towards. This activity will also help give you a sense of their character. This task will encourage pupils to think about how they look, their personality, the things they enjoy doing, and who are the important people in their lives. The worksheet finishes with a goal that pupils can set themselves to achieve – or work towards completing - by the end of the school year. Teachers can revisit these goals during the last term. Pupils can either set these goals themselves, work in groups or teachers can ask pupils to work as a class to set a goal for everyone to work towards. The second worksheet is aimed at pupils who are working in groups or as a class to set an achievable goal. This may be more suitable for pupils working at lower key stage 1 or for children with SEND.
