PSHE Enrichment Day

On Wednesday 24th May the whole of Year 10 suspended their normal timetable to take part in the PSHE Enrichment Day. Students followed a carousel of workshops run by outside agencies on a variety of themes from the PSHE curriculum in order to support and enrich their learning. These included: NatWest Moneysense, the Fire Service, Yoga and Self Defence.

NatWest Moneysense- Professionals from NatWest Bank were on hand to help support and advise students in a workshop designed to encourage financial awareness. Students were given a project looking at the best value for money mobile phone contracts. They shared their current phone usage and discussed preferences for different types of contracts. Groups researched a variety of packages for a chosen character and presented their findings to the class.

Fire Service – The focus for this workshop was Road Safety. Students discussed the risks involved in driving and using a mobile phone. A film, interspersed with discussion points, showed the dangers involved and the devastating impact that a traffic accident can have on the lives of family and friends.

Yoga- Students took part in a session showing how yoga can be beneficial to the physical and mental wellbeing of an individual. Students experienced relaxation and breathing techniques alongside yoga exercises.

Self Defence- Students were given the opportunity to gain a basic understanding of Self Defence through demonstration and practical tasks.
