Free PSHE KS2 Teaching Resources for Primary Teachers

Resources for PSHE at KS2

Key stage two encompasses such a broad age range, from years 3, 4 and 5, then up to year 6 when children are almost teenagers, that any scheme of work for PSHE needs to be carefully planned and organised throughout the key stage. This can be made easier when you can use the free teaching resources included here, including lesson plans, resources for teachers, worksheets and loads of great new teaching ideas for PSHE.

Learn with Dogs is a fantastic site as it contains plenty of resources for teachers to use in PSHE lessons when explaining welfare of animals. There are different pages with games, planning charity events and more. The games are easy to use that pupils will love as they are colourful, engaging and educational. It is important that pupils are aware of welfare for animals as it will teach them to be a better human being.

Teaching KS2 PSHE

How you teach and plan this non-statutory subject is largely up to you or your school, but by the end of the key stage, students should be able to discuss their own self esteem, describe the different beliefs and values that society has, express a broad minded approach to diversity, deal with change successfully (including moving onto secondary school), feel comfortable with their understanding of changes relating to puberty and make healthy lifestyle choices for themselves.

They should also be able to demonstrate an understanding of the importance of saving money, and the skills required by employers in the workplace. They should be able to name commonly used illegal drugs, and their effects. Peer pressure and resisting peer pressure is an important topic at this stage. While we don’t promise that we can provide something for all of these outcomes, we are confident that the free resources you find on this page will help with some of them, and save you loads of time with planning and preparation.
