Sometimes as upper KS2 pupils get towards the top of the school their relationship with the truth becomes a little more...loose. In this PSHE lesson plan children get a chance to explore truth and lies and the consequences of both. It's not about lecturing or preaching, it's about getting them to come to their own conclusions. This lesson plan contains straight-forward instructions, full lesson plan (no pre-planning, yay!) with activity resources plus learning outcomes and self-assessment. Simples!
Exam season is here! If you’ve tried and the breathing and mindfulness stuff with your pupils and they’re still stressing out, then have a go at these three techniques.
One topic, one sheet of A4, three ways.
If you or your colleague find assessing PSHE a bit of a headache then try these three really simple self-assessment techniques. They can be used in pretty much any PSHE topic and require very little planning or input. Use them more than once and your pupils will become more confident in using them.
Please download, share and review. Good luck!

Quite a few teachers have asked for some ideas for anti-bullying week so I’ve put together a lost of some simple tried and tested ideas. This isn’t a set of lesson plans but rather a springboard to get your thinking about how you could use some of the activities in your school but of course you’ll add your own flavour!
As always with any PSHE-related activities it’s best to plan them as a part of a spiral programme running throughout the school but sometimes we just need a bit of a helping hand!
Don’t forget to maintain that balance of knowledge, skills and understanding.
Have a great anti-bullying week.
