Personal Development Curriculum for Term 5

Please enter an introduction for your blog post here.

Next term in PSHE, “Living in the Wider World” will be our third and final theme of the year within our Personal Development curriculum and will take place throughout Terms 5 and 6. This topic will explore diverse communities that make up our wonderful UK and also teach children about economic and social skills! Diversity will be our focus week at the start of Term 5 and the very first day will start with the question “What is a community?”.

Children will discuss and learn about what makes up a community, the community they live in and the people and places that shape their life.

Years 5 and 6 will also have a talk from the RNLI to discuss water safety pm Wednesday 19th April.

Throughout the week they will make links with Upton’s Core Values and British Values.
