Years 1 and 2 (KS1) will follow the tales of Zippy, the stick insect, and his owner Tig. While Years 3 and 4 will focus on Apple, the pet hamster. While this curriculum only runs for one year, the children will be equipped with lifelong skills to take with them throughout their school career, and beyond.
Over the coming months, we hope the students will share with you what they have been learning. Pupils will be better able to identify different feelings, as well as suggest strategies for coping with these. If taught these skills early on, they are far better equipped to handle life’s potential ups and downs.
At certain points throughout the year, students may ask for family members to assist with Home Activities. While these are optional, they will provide an invaluable opportunity to engage in dialogue with your child about their feelings and other important issues.
All staff delivering these lessons have been specifically trained. However, if you have concerns about any of the issues being covered do not hesitate to contact you child’s class teacher.
