Class Countries

Every year group in our school learns about a different country. By the end of year 6, the children have complied a Passport to the World containing the learning they have done about each country.  In year 1, our class country is India. We learn a lot about India through our topics.

PSHE

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.

Newsletters

Year group newsletters are written each half term and contain information about current learning, reminders, how to support your child's learning at home and key dates. The newsletters are sent out via email, are uploaded to our Class Dojo class stories and can be viewed by clicking the links below.

Reminders / Key Dates / Useful Information 

We change spellings, word boxes, reading and library books over the week as well as using them for morning jobs and interventions so we need the children to bring all these everyday. This is for both classes.
