Today’s PSHE Lesson

Stress (What Might Cause Stress)

Stress seems to be a condition that many of us feel in our everyday lives today. In fact, in a 2018 UK survey, 74% of us said that we had felt overwhelming stress in our lives. There are many different causes and reasons for why we get stressed and some of these stresses may end up having an effect on our families and children. Understanding what stress is and why this can occur is important if children are to recognise it, help with it and know when to get help if it’s affecting them or their families and friends.

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today...

  • How stress is a response that living things have to a condition in the environment. It’s the body’s way of reacting to a threat, challenge or barrier and it usually changes the living thing’s environment. If the living thing finds this change difficult then stress is caused.
  • The reasons why we might feel stressed and why adults in our lives may feel stressed for example, homework problems, bills to pay or illness.
  • How people react to stress in different ways for instance they may shout, withdraw, give up, take tablets or smoke more.

How You Can Help From Home

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

  • Talk to your child if you’re feeling stressed and see if they can help you with it.
  • Share with your child when you’ve felt stressed and what you did to overcome this.

Go Above & Beyond 

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

  • Talk to your child about the responsibilities that you have as an adult to look after the family and home.
  • Explain that sometimes there are problems or worries about different things and that sometimes these are easily solved but at other times they may cause stress.
  • Talk about how you cope with stress and how others in the family can help you.
  • Think about how you deal with stress and whether this may be affecting your child or family and talk about this or get help if you need it.

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.
