PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics education)

PSHE education in school is promoted through our wide and varied curriculum which is carefully planned to enhance the children’s personal, social, emotional and economic development.

At Golcar J, I & N School, we use the PSHE Association’s three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. These three themes form part of a developmental, spiral curriculum. This means that the same key principles are revisited each year but are taken a step further to build upon the children’s knowledge and understanding. They permeate school life and are discussed regularly in assemblies and lessons, forming part of our day to day vocabulary.

This half term's PSHE learning 

Our PSHE theme for the Autumn term is Relationships

Class Countries

Every year group in our school learns about a different country. By the end of Year 6, the children have compiled a Passport to the World containing the learning they have done about each country.  In Year 4, our class country is Egypt.

Remote Learning

In case of self- isolation, please find all of our remote learning lessons and resources on your child's Class Dojo portfolio. This will be linked to what children will be learning in school. 

Reminders / Key Dates 

Please see the most recent newsletter.

PE days:

Badgers – Mondays and Thursdays

Hedgehogs - Tuesdays and Wednesdays

 Please make sure all kit is clearly labelled with your child's name. For safety reasons, if your child has pierced ears, please try and remove earrings on their PE days or ensure small studs are worn which can be taped over.

Year 4 timetables check - government introduction

The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided.

This year, the children in Year 4 will be doing their timetable's check in June. 

We recommend that the children practise at home with songs, chants, online games including TT Rockstars and Hit the Button. 

The checks are nothing to worry about but if you do have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
