‘Nurturing Individual Excellence’

Pupil Voice

RHE (PSHE)  Pupil Voice - March 2022

Mrs Cheadle met with a group of children to talk about their Discovery and SCARF lessons so far.  We looked at the class books to see what they had been learning about.  

What have they enjoyed?  

What have they learnt?

The children completed a questionnaire and had chance to discuss any others issues or areas.  

Most of the KS2 children said that they felt that they could share their thoughts and ideas.  They felt that the teacher listened and welcomed their views.  Some of the children talked about not feeling listened to by their peers.  We discussed this problem and said that we should re-establish the rules around taking turns and being respectful.  Year 3 and Year 4 spoke about some issues during the changeover from French to PSHE.  They felt that some of their class peers took a while to settle.  We talked about including a chance to get up and move before coming back to start the next lesson.  Update: The Year 3 and 4 children are going to have a short walk outside, to let off a bit of steam before returning for their next lesson.  We will review after two weeks to see if this has improved the situation for the children.

One Year 3 child said that sometimes lessons can be upsetting e.g. anti-bullying.  We talked about these areas being important to discuss even though we might not like to hear about it.  It might help someone to know what to do if ever they are sad about a situation.

The KS1 children enjoyed their PSHE lessons.  They talked about the 'special days' e.g. NSPCC 'Pants are Private', First Aid, Safer Internet and 'Children in Need'.  They felt that they learned lots and loved looking at their class book to remember some of the things they had done.  The children liked the activities from both Discovery and SCARF.

Year 1 children said " It helps you find out about feelings."

"We are learning about different families"

Year 2 children said "People are all different...we all like different things"

"It's important to know about how people are feeling" 

Mrs Cheadle noted and agreed to pass on comments, especially those that could help improve learning for the children.
