*TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More)
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education and Relationships Education is taught in every year group at Brownmead and is a huge part of the school curriculum throughout the day, from assembly time to class based taught lessons and workshops. Through these lessons, children develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need throughout their lives.
The children develop skills to help them stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life today in modern Britain. Acquiring these skills will enable them to be equipped throughout their lives.
The areas covered in the PSHE and Relationships Education curriculum are:
Health & Wellbeing, Living in the Wider World and Relationships.
Alongside these termly topics children will also take part in sessions for Mental Health Awareness and Mindfulness. In Year 3 children will also take part in the Little Roots Project and they will cover the following sessions:
Values and mutual respect, Behaviour is a choice, Feelings, Feeling safe, Safety online, Caring for others, Differences and similarities, Working together, Happy being me. Children in Years 5 and 6 will take part in the Choices/CRC Project, working on various projects about their personal safety, internet safety and helping children in Year 6 with their transitions to secondary school.
Health 4 Life
Children at Brownmead experience a broad and balanced curriculum and this includes children having the opportunities of being taught how to grow fruit and vegetables from Reception up to Year 6. They tend their raised beds within the school grounds and grow their own produce. Along with the produce grown, children have their own cookery room where they use the products grown within their cooking. They are taught how to use the equipment safely and find out about all the equipment needed to develop their cooking skills further. We have received an award for our work with the ‘Health for Life’ initiative from the Mayor of Birmingham.
