Our Vision for PSHE at Castleview:
Through teaching PSHE at Castleview, we create a happy, purposeful, supportive environment where all children are able to develop an understanding of the ever-changing world in which we live, develop the skills necessary to take an active role in their community and manage their life effectively.
Curriculum Overview, Nursery to Year 6:
Please follow the links below to view the termly overviews for each year group. The Medium-Term Overview’s are carefully sequenced to ensure children build on prior learning and extend their understanding, also developing skills and confidence when discussion, debate and presentation.
At Castleview, children across the school are given the opportunity to use their voice and become an active School Councillor, Eco Warrior, House Captain, Digital Leader or Junior Leader. As part of their role: they may be asked to hold an assembly in order to share an important message; carry out research or help plan and deliver tasks around the school.
Castleview awareness & celebrations:
As part of our PSHE curriculum, at Castleview, we hold a number of awareness and celebration days. Annually, we raise awareness and money for the following charities, Jeans for Genes, Children in Need, Save the Children (Christmas Jumper Day) and Comic Relief through dressing up and taking part in activities at school. We also have a number of celebratory days including Culture Days and the recent Platinum Royal Jubilee. As a school, we also highlight important events such as Children’s Mental Health Week where children engage in a number of activities across the week highlighting the importance of mental health and strategies to engage or cope.
External visitors:Throughout the year, we invite external companies in to Castleview to carry out assemblies and workshops. Sessions range from promoting physical skills (Balance Bikeability / Bikeability) to assemblies where mental health is explored and discussed (The Fantastic FRED Experience). Each half term, children from each year group go out on educational visits, linked to their topics. This often provides children with experiences they may not have outside of the school. For example, watching musicals in London’s West End.
Residentials:Across Key Stage 2, children are offered the opportunity to go away on a residential trip. In Year 3, the children enjoy a day of water sports at Bray Lake and a day of adventure at Dinton Pastures Country Park. They also enjoy a family picnic and sleepover in the school hall! Year 4 travel to Reading where they spend two nights at Ufton Court experiencing life as a Tudor. Each year, Condover Hall welcome Year 5 for three nights where children challenge themselves and take part in activities such as archery, abseiling and aerial trek. Year 6 travel the furthest and spend four nights in the Isle of Wight where they experience activities such as kayaking, the giant swing and a sensory trail.
