To begin with, children will explore when they should ask for help, and the possible consequences of not asking for help when it is needed. They will identify people who they can ask for help in a variety of different scenarios, including online safety as well as emergency situations, and will learn how to make a 999 call. Finally, children will look at how to ask for help with any worries they may have.

Each of the lessons in this Asking for Help Year 2 PSHE pack includes an easy-to-follow plan, a set of engaging slides for the teaching input, differentiated activity ideas and printable resources.

 
#Lesson1Whenandhowtoaskforhelp

In this first Asking for Help KS1 lesson, children will begin to discuss when, how and who they can ask for help.

Through the story of a boy called Hayden, children look at the consequences of not asking for help when it is needed. In their independent activities, they will explore when, how and who Hayden could have asked for help. In the FSD? activity, children are challenged to act out opposing scenarios where Hayden does, and doesn't, ask for help. Finally, children discuss Hayden's reluctance to ask for help.

After working as a class to list and discuss a range of people whose job it is to help us and keep us safe, children will then demonstrate their understanding of this in their independent activities. They will be challenged to match scenarios to appropriate people who could help, or write sentences explaining how and when these people could help them or keep them safe. In the FSD? activity, children are tasked to create posters to put around the classroom or school showing how different people can help us.

Together, children will look at a given situation where the emergency services were needed, and explore the 999 call between the operator, call-handler and the caller. In their independent activities, children are challenged to role-play a 999 call, based on different given scenarios. In the alternative activity, children create a poster giving information on how to make an emergency call.

#Lesson4Keepingsafeonline

Children begin this Online Safety KS1 PSHE lesson by exploring what being 'online' means, and discussing the types of things they do when they are online.

As a class, children will first look at some important 'dos' and 'don'ts' for keeping safe online, and then use this knowledge to discuss what they would do in different given scenarios. In their independent activities, children show what they know through a sorting task, taking a quiz or offering advice to characters in different situations. In the alternative activity, children create a 'Dos and Don'ts' online safety booklet.

#Lesson5Askingforhelpwithworries

In this final KS1 PSHE lesson, children look at exactly what being 'worried' means, how it can make us feel, and how we can ask for help with this feeling.

Together as a class, they then read The Huge Bag of Worries by Virginia Ironside. Children talk through the events of the book, and how the main character felt when she finally shared her worries with someone. In their independent activities, children are asked to think about what they do with their worries, who they could share them with, and how other people can help them.

Included in this KS1 lesson pack are an easy-to-follow plan, a slideshow for the teaching input, and differentiated, printable worksheets.
