The “P” in PSHE stands for Personal Education. But what exactly is that? Well, it covers a variety of topics centred around a theme of children being happy and healthy in their own minds and bodies.
Mental health is important to take care of, even amongst KS1 age children. This section deals with recognising and understanding emotions in ourselves and others. It also tells children some of the warning signs and gives them strategies for dealing with negative feelings. Most of the quizzes have a link at the bottom to the relevant BBC Bitesize page.
The concept of self and individuality are also parts of personal education. It is important that children understand that they are individuals and that we are all different. It is OK and natural that we are all individuals and children need to respect themselves to nurture good self-esteem.
Another topic that’s covered is growing and changing. For KS1 and KS2 children this is about how our bodies change as we get older and prepares them for the onset of puberty. For older children in KS3 and KS4 sexual health, pregnancy and consent are parts of this.
The quizzes in this section are all about some of the issues covered in the “personal” section of PSHE. We have three other sections: Health Education, Social Education and Economic Education. These look at the other parts of PSHE so I do recommend you have a go at those quizzes too.
Learning PSHE need not be dull and boring. Our quizzes make the subject interactive and engaging, which helps children to learn. PSHE may not improve children’s GCSE results, but it does help to make them better rounded individuals.
