Welcome toPennington infant schoolReaching together on our learning adventure


Jigsaw PSHE

 PSHE  (Personal, Social, Health, Education) is very important to us at Pennington Infant School  so we have  introduced Jigsaw PSHE in the Autumn term 2019.  It is a comprehensive scheme of work which promotes emotional well being and personal development for our children, encompassing the new statutory  requirements for Relationship Education. It supports our SMSC (Spritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) learning as well as embedding British Values. We all fit together.


Each half term the whole school will work together on the same theme. This half term the theme is 'Being Me in My World' and are exploring this theme through weekly assemblies and weekly PSHE lessons. So far we have discussed the Jigsaw Charter, ways to be kind and using Calm Me time if our feelings get so big


The children have been introduced to the Jiggies Family. Each year group have a puzzle piece who helps them with their thinking and talking in PSHE lessons. Jigsaw Jenie helps in Year R, Jigsaw Jack helps in Year 1 and Jigsaw Jo helps in Year 2.  Jerrie Cat and the Chime helps all the children with mindfulness and Calm Me Time.
