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

British Values – Democracy (Voting Systems)

For the purpose of the general election, the UK is divided into 650 areas or constituencies (seats) and at the election the candidate with the most votes becomes the MP for that area. The voting system used to elect MPs to the UK Parliament is called
First Past the Post (FPTP).

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today…

  • To understand the different ways that voting can be structured.
  • That there are advantages and disadvantages to each system.

How You Can Help From Home

Here’s what you can talk about during dinner…

  • Talk to your child about the the general election to develop understanding.
  • Ask your child about the government, democracy and voting systems.

Go Above & Beyond 

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

  • It is important that we all understand how the general election works.
  • Each country has its own voting system and these should also be known.
  • If we learn this from a young age, it gives us an understanding of how the government and voting works.
  • Voting systems are also used daily, and choosing the right one is important.

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.
