Key Stage 2PSHE Knowledge OrganiserHealth EducationSelf and Emotional WellbeingPSHEYear 4

This Changes and Choices PSHE scheme of work for Year 4 fits into our Self and Emotional Wellbeing strand. The lessons encourage children to think about what mental and physical health are, how to appropriately express emotions, know when to seek support and much more. 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.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

In the first lesson of this KS2 PSHE scheme, children learn what mental and physical health are and why they are important. In the following lesson, children learn the important skill of being able to express feelings and understanding that feelings are transient. Then, the children look critically at the time they spend online. Learning what bullying is and how to combat it is the focus of the next lesson, and finally, children look at how feelings can impact others and when to seek help.

Everything you need to teach these five engaging PSHE KS2 lessons is included! For each lesson, there is a detailed lesson plan with differentiated activities, a high-quality slideshow and all the printable resources required. Looking for more resources to help develop Self and Emotional Wellbeing? Check out our Self and Emotional Wellbeing collection of PSHE schemes to help your class recognise their personal qualities, interests, values and strengths in order to develop a sense of identity and self-worth.

#Lesson2FeelingsareTransient

In this lesson, children will gain insight into how emotions feel inside their bodies and what emotions look like to others. They will be reminded that feelings are transient as they picture a storm passing or reaching the end of a tunnel.

Children will be reminded that all feelings are OK, but not all behaviours are OK. They will think about why it is important to stay in control of an emotion and reflect on different regulation strategies. Children will then think about times they have wanted to hide an emotion and why people may not want to show how they are feeling.

This lesson concludes by introducing the term 'rescuer'. Children will think about what a rescuer is and if rescuing someone is always the right course of action. They will look at some scenarios about when supporting someone through a challange is a more appropriate course of action than fixing the problem for them.

Children will be encouraged to think about the positives and negatives of being online while thinking about screen use in general.

The children will learn about the potential of screens to be addictive and be introduced to the effect dopamine has on the body. They will be encouraged to think of alternatives to spending time online to help them take breaks from screens.
