APPROACH

JIGSAW Scheme

The Jigsaw Scheme is a playful and engaging scheme used to address all areas of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and Relationship and Sex Education (RSE). The scheme is age appropriate for the children in our school.  

Every Jigsaw lesson in school follows this structure:

  • Connect Us is taught  once for each puzzle piece. Pupils play a fun game to open the learning for the puzzle piece.
  • Calm Me Time- All pupils sit quietly and focus on their breathing and a question related to the topic for the cycle.
  • Open My Mind- Singing the Jigsaw song for that puzzle and an activity to interest the pupils in the learning focus. Pupils have the main learning points taught to them during this time.
  • Tell Me/Show Me- Pupils pass their Jigsaw character around and talk about or show what they understand about the learning from the lesson.
  • Help Me Reflect- Pupils use Jerrie Paws to pause and begin thinking about the learning that we have completed during the lesson. During this time, pupils think about their thoughts and feelings.

The aim of teaching PSHE through Jigsaw is to support pupils to feel a strong sense of belonging and community by taking part in weekly lessons, talking about their learning and playing games to support the learning. Every class in school delivers a weekly Jigsaw lesson.

RSE CURRICULUM

Our Relationships and Sex education is covered through Jigsaw PSHE lessons and through Science lessons in KS1. Children learn about safe and healthy relationships, the life cycle of mammals, including humans, to correctly name parts of their bodies and to learn that they are in control of their body and their choices and are supported in saying ‘No’ and making their own decisions. Children learn who safe adults are and safe touch and that they own their body and can refuse physical contact that they do not like, such as hugging or holding hands.

Our RSE curriculum is designed to safeguard our children and provide them with valuable life skills to keep them safe and give them the confidence to make their own choices regarding their body and personal space.

Please see our school PSHE/RSE policy for more information.
