Human and Life Skills

Human and Life Skills

The “Human and Life Skills” curriculum draws on the core issues introduced through the Personal, Social and Health education curriculum along with the statutory guidelines set out for Religious studies in schools. Topics include the purpose of rules, friendship, bullying, health education, aspects of Citizenship, religious beliefs and ‘British Values’.

 

All aspects of the course are designed to be active and use a combination of discussion, role-play, written work and sometimes active engagement activities to achieve the outcomes; outside speakers are also used.

 

Once per half term, students will participate in a themed drop down day, which is also an integral part of the Human & Life skills programme. During the drop down day, the timetable will be suspended and students will take part in a variety of activities allowing them to develop a deeper understanding of the theme and topic. In the first half term students explore the main beliefs and practices of the six main world religions, followed by British Values, Internet Safety, future aspirations and finally, emotional wellbeing.

 

As well as our drop down days, students will also participate in the ‘Everyday resilience programme’, which is designed to strengthen emotional resilience and promote positive mental health.

 

At the start of every week, students come together for a year group assembly. Through our assembly programme, students will be introduced to world religious festivals as well as key issues and topics that affect young people today.

 

Whilst pupils will acquire good knowledge of the areas covered they will also learn the importance of empathy, reciprocity and understanding as well as develop the skills of description, explanation and evaluation.  Individual reflection on personal strengths and achievements is built into the Year 7 Human and Life skills course.  Time for reflecting on the various topics covered, and identifying personal progress and understandings gained occurs at regular intervals throughout the academic year.

Course Text Books/Websites: There is no specific text book.

Additional Materials/Equipment required:

Most materials are provided by the academy. Occasionally, students may be asked to make a financial contribution to an educational visit linked to the curriculum.

Home Support: Encourage your son/daughter to read a broad sheet newspaper and watch the daily news as a family. Following this, encourage careful thought - be willing to discuss issues with your son/daughter.  Help can be given by asking your son / daughter about the various topics covered in as part of the Human and Life Skills curriculum, and encouraging your child to make sensible choices in terms of enjoying a healthy lifestyle, and establishing and maintaining positive relationships.
