At The Gateway we follow the Jigsaw scheme of work which brings together Personal, Social, Health and Economic education by linking emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development with a mindfulness approach to support pupils' learning in PSHE.
Each class takes part in weekly PSHE/circle time lessons. The jigsaw programme is structured into six half termly Puzzles (units) with the whole school studying the same Puzzle at the same time.
Our 'Jigsaw journals' record our class thoughts and views.
The Puzzles are as follows:
Term 1: Being Me
Term 2: Celebrating Differences
Term 3: Dreams and Goals
Term 4: Healthy Me
Term 5: Relationships
Term 6: Changing Me
The programme is enhanced by pupil participation in special events and workshops in school such as, Roots to Food cooking competition as well as links to the science curriculum and food technology.
