PSHE, British Values & Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC)
As well as being embedded into our values, ethos and curriculum, SMSC and British Values are also incorporated into our weekly assembly themes. Here are some examples of the themes we explore.
In PSHE year 5 have made their own advent calendar, with each day showing an act of kindness they can show to someone throughout the build up to The Big Day! We also discussed how ‘giving’ doesn’t have to involve money and being shown kindness can often mean more to people than a gift of monetary value.!
Reception were visited by the Kindness Elves this morning! They spread kindness all over the world through their kindness options. They have given us our first mission... To give our grown ups at home a big hug and tell them that we love them. ♥️
Year 3 looked at grief and loss in PSHE this afternoon, they discussed the different emotions that this could bring as well as generating some ideas for how to deal with the situations.
In PSHE this afternoon, Year 3 looked at transitions and how different transitions made them feel. They then considered how they could prepare themselves for transitions in the future.

Year 5 spent some time looking at letters from the home front in PSHE this afternoon. They had to consider how the soldiers would have felt writing them and the difficulties they would have faced sending and receiving letters.
A great PSHE lesson with Year 3 this afternoon as they looked at feelings and emotions. They started by considering how it made them feel on the inside and then explained how it made them look on the outside.
Some great #oddsocks across our whole school to spread awareness for #antibullyingweek #oddsockday. We also watched an anti-bullying cartoon and discussed the importance of being kind and celebrating our differences.
Very poignant 2 minute silence at the Franklin statue this morning with the Spilsby British Legion. Impeccably observed by our year 5 and 6 children who then went and visited the cemetery to lay wreaths and crosses on the war graves.
Year 3 looked at 'Achievements' in their PSHE lesson. They considered how they felt when they achieved something, especially when it was a difficult challenge to overcome.

For our Bonfire Night assembly, we learnt more about the values of Democracy and the Rule of Law. The children were asked to think of what Democracy is and how we follow it at Spilsby Primary.
Year 3 looked at how to be ‘Media Wise’ in PSHE this afternoon. They considered how the media influences our thoughts, feelings and behaviours as well as whether it can be harmful or helpful.
As part of PSHE, Year 1 and 2 have been looking at maintaining hygiene. Before half term they out a piece of bread into a wallet with washes hands and then a piece into a wallet that had been touched with dirty hands and this is the result. This has helped them understand the importance of keeping hands clean, especially at this time of hear when there are lots of germs about!
Last week Year 1 and 2 enjoyed a PSHE lesson on dental health. We talked about how to look after our teeth, the importance of it and how we should regularly go to the dentist even if we find it a bit scary. They had a turn at brushing the big set of teeth properly and even took home a toothbrush and toothpaste of their own. Thankyou Colgate!
Y1 and 2 learnt about Road Safety this week. They leant the importance of holding hands when crossing the road, using traffic lights and watching out for cars.
