Today Your Child Learned...

Dear Parent & Guardian, 
We are excited to share that your child has completed the following PSHE lesson. Check out our overview and top tips to support their development...

Today’s PSHE Lesson

Dealing With Loss (Coping With Loss)

Sadly It’s a fact of life that we will all lose a loved one at some stage in our life. Statistics show that in every classroom, 1 child aged between 5 and 16 years of age, will experience the death of a relative or sibling. Death is often seen as a difficult subject to discuss but by being more open may help our children to make more sense of this inevitable event.

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today...

  • How we all grow close to other people or animals in our lives.
  • The circle of life and how eventually we and those around us will pass away whilst others are being born into the world.
  • Knowing that we all deal with loss in different ways, Some people will cry, some withdraw, some talk about a loved one a lot, and some keep special souvenirs to help remember them, for example.

How You Can Help From Home

Here’s what you can talk about during dinner...

  • Talk to your child about death and how it’s a natural part of life for all humans and animals.
  • Share with your child some of the times when you may have lost someone or something that you loved and how you dealt with the loss.

Go Above & Beyond 

Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons...

  • Finding age appropriate books about loss to read to your child may introduce the subject sensitively.
  • Talking about the feelings of characters in the stories and relating them to family situations may become easier this way.
  • Watch The Lion King film together and talk about how there is a circle of life and that being born and dying is part of that natural cycle.
  • Answer your child’s questions as honestly and sensitively as you can.
  • Explain that dying doesn’t always happen if you’ve been ill for a long time but it is important to be able to prepare children for the event.

When it comes to your child’s development, teachers and parents are better together! By aligning our goals and education techniques, we can better realise our vision of positively preparing your child for their future.

The pupils at our school are really enjoying the lifewise scheme. The scheme is very staff-friendly and easy to monitor. More staff are now teaching lifewise as a consequence and all the DfE statutory guidance (+more) is covered. The staff at lifewise are extremely professional. As it is a digital platform, lessons are constantly being up-dated and improved.

Lifewise is a fantastic tool to use. It is easy and clear to navigate and as well as in class we have used Lifewise during remote learning sessions, whilst in lockdown. I would thoroughly recommend this 'wellbeing session' tool to any school. It is exceptional.

Lifewise was so helpful for my online ELSA sessions. The format gave the children the chance to express their emotions. They loved the quiz and enjoyed the conversation.
