2. PSHE
This is children's mental health awareness week. In Y5 the focus today is: Give and Take
We are going to think about how we cope with differences and dilemmas. We have to find solutions and work together.
 
Think about times when people have a potential conflict or problem and they have to work out what to do. Read the scenarios on the worksheet below, and discuss possible 'actions' to find the best solution. 
Remember, there isn't always a ‘right’ thing to do, it depends on the individual situation.
 
You need to consider - 
  • Relationships Education Caring friendships
     The characteristics of friendships, including mutual respect, truthfulness, trustworthiness, loyalty, kindness, generosity, trust, sharing interests and experiences and support with problems and difficulties.
  • Relationships Education Caring friendships
    That healthy friendships are positive and welcoming towards others, and do not make others feel lonely or excluded.
