Lesson Plans and Activities for Primary and Secondary School PSHE Teachers
PSHE lesson plans and worksheets can be a really useful way to help teachers bring social and health issues sensitively into the classroom. School budgets are tight in the current economic climate and free materials are a real bonus. At primary level, the PHSE KS1 lesson plans and KS2 activities provided by many of the UK’s leading charities provide a nice selection of topics from globalisation, to responsibility involved in pet ownership. The PHSE KS3 and KS4 activities tackle issues such as bullying, personal finance and crime and have been produced by authorities who are highly qualified to help you teach these difficult topics.
Teaching some PSHE Topics can be Daunting, Especially for New Teachers, so these Great Ideas can help save you Hours of Research Time
If you have never taught lessons on sexual health, racism or personal finance it can be daunting so having access to a great bank of free lesson ideas from top contributors including well known charities such as Oxfam and the Red Cross, and specialist organizations such as Money Sense and Think Education can really help. They have produced high quality lesson plans and classroom activities that will engage and inform pupils. In many cases the education resources will have been produced in conjunction with specialist teachers and educational advisers so they will work well in the majority of classrooms.
Many of the UK banks produce great economic resources that help non-specialist teachers who may not be confident when teaching about finances. Topics such as healthy eating and body image in schools are currently high in the media’s agenda so there are some great resources being championed by high profile people that your students will love.
The PSHE association has lots of useful information including training courses on assessing progression and learning, identifying issues that effect young people, their families and their communities and the curriculum framework and models for organization. They feature some interesting ideas too from Gok Wan’s campaign for schools to include body image lessons, to keeping teachers up to date with the latest government consultations.
We want our children to understand personal wellbeing, economic wellbeing and have financial capability. These are important skills for modern day living and it is important that they are taught these skills, and wider globalization issues, to ensure they understand many of the emotional and monetary issues that face people living in the 21st century.
