At Dunstone Primary we have introduced a whole school PSHE scheme called Jigsaw. This combines PSHE, emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development.
Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike. Jigsaw aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.
There are six Puzzles (half-term units of work) each with six Pieces (lessons). Every year group studies the same Puzzle at the same time, allowing for whole school themes. Each year group is taught one lesson per week and all lessons are delivered in an age and stage-appropriate way so that they meet the children’s needs.
The different puzzle pieces over the year are:
