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

Feeling Sad (How Sadness Makes Us Feel)

We all feel sad sometimes, this is a common emotion that we feel for a variety of different reasons.  Feeling sad on occasions is normal and your child needs to understand that this is a common feeling that everyone experiences.  They should know however, that feeling sad for long periods of time isn’t healthy. Let them know that they can always talk when they are feeling sad.

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today...

  • Recognising a variety of everyday emotions that we feel.
  • Understanding what sadness is and what might make us feel this way.
  • What could make us sad.
  • Knowing there is a difference between sadness and depression, which tends to last longer and may need different help.

How You Can Help From Home

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

  • Remind your child that sadness is a normal feeling but that feeling sad a lot of the time isn’t healthy.
  • Talk to your child about who they can talk to if they’re feeling sad.
  • Ask your child if there’s anything that’s making them feel sad at the moment.

Go Above & Beyond 

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

  • Chatting regularly with your child will help you determine how they are feeling.
  • Reassure them that a variety of emotions are normal and we all experience different feelings at different times.
  • If your child is unhappy or sad, try to find out what’s causing this sadness and if they’re unwilling to tell you, perhaps they would find it easier to write it down or talk to someone else they trust.
  • If there is any known depression in the family, maybe explain a little about what it may feel like to your child.

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.
