Key Stage 1PSHE Knowledge OrganiserHealth EducationSelf and Emotional WellbeingPSHEYear 2

This ready-to-teach set of five PSHE lessons encourages your children to develop their sense of self, explore their role within their family and friendships, and helps them to both identify and manage big feelings.

A Knowledge Organiser is available to support the learning in this scheme. It is included in the Complete Series download or can be purchased individually.

If you are looking for more lessons based on and around feelings, you might also find our KS1 English lesson pack, 'The Colour Monster', based on the wonderful book by Anna Llenas, helpful.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

At the start of this 5-lesson scheme, children will get to know and understand themselves as a unique individual, before thinking about the role they play within their families and friendships. They will then learn about the importance of wellbeing, and explore activities to make themselves feel good. Children will also name and identify how big feelings, such as worry, anger, sadness and excitement, feel in our bodies, before trying out some calming techniques for when they experience these emotions.

Each of the lessons in this Being Me 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.

 
#Lesson1OurSenseofSelf

In this first lesson, children explore what makes them a unique individual. They begin by reading the book What Makes Me a Me? by Ben Faulks and David Tazzyman.

Children will identify and discuss their personality traits, their hobbies and interests, their likes and dislikes, what they are good at and what they would like to get better at, and how they might react in given scenarios. In their independent activities, they choose, complete or write sentences about themselves, then arrange them into a unique pattern. The alternative activity encourages children to write sentences about themselves on a fingerprint template.

This Sense of Self KS1 lesson pack comes with differentiated activity ideas, printable resources, a slide show for the teaching input, and of course, an easy-to-follow plan! Please be aware that, for copyright purposes, we are unable to provide the text for this lesson.

In their independent activities, they will create a recipe for how to feel good using these activities as the ingredients. The alternative activity for this lesson is the fun Smelly Stations activity! (Smell is the only sense which has direct access to the limbic system - the part of the brain responsible for regulating emotions.).

Children will learn that, sometimes, feelings can overwhelm us, which may affect what we say and do. They are introduced to the ‘Name it to Tame it‘ technique.
