In this PSHE unit on Safe Spaces and Boundaries, your Year 2 class will explore what makes them feel comfortable and safe. Throughout this important scheme, there is a focus on children reflecting on what they themselves would do in different situations, and on equipping children with the language and confidence to ask for help if they need it.

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.

You might also want to take a look at our Year 2 PSHE scheme, 'Asking for Help'.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

Children will first recognise that what makes people feel comfortable and safe can be different for everyone. They will discuss who their trusted adults are and will look at how to ask for help if they find themselves in a situation that makes them feel uncomfortable or unsafe. Children will also learn what is meant by peer pressure. They will again practise how to ask for help if they find themselves experiencing peer pressure, and will look at strategies to resist peer pressure. Finally, children will explore the difference between safe and unsafe secrets and the importance of not keeping an unsafe secret.
