Reading

Reading every day is an essential part of learning
10 minutes each day can be beneficial to children.
Your child will be given a reading diary, an adult must comment and sign the diaries to say they have read.

PSHE

(personal development, social skills and health education for children and young people aged 3 years to 16 years)

we believe that PSHE is the foundation for learning and development in all children.

In Fordbridge we use Jigsaw.

 

What is Jigsaw?

Jigsaw is a complete set of lesson plans for schools, one for each week, covering personal development, social skills and health education for children and young people aged 3 years to 16 years.

Our aim is to equip children to understand who they are, to be healthy and happy and good, caring people.

There is a strong emphasis on emotional wellbeing and mental health.

 

In school as part of our PSHE scheme we will be discussing the importance of the PANTS rule with all children
