This week, we have a PSHE session every day as we are completing our 'Protective Behaviours' unit!


Session 2: Safe and unsafe feelings

Today we are going to think about feeling safe and what that means to each of us. We all have the right to feel safe all of the time. 

Start by imagining a safe place. It could be a real or a made up place. You may want to close your eyes to help you picture it. Look around, what can you see? What can you hear/touch/smell? 

What feelings do you feel when you are in a safe place? Maybe you feel warm, cosy, secure and relaxed. You can imagine being in your safe place to help you feel calm and relaxed. 

Is it fun to feel scared? Some people like the feeling of excitement that some people feel when riding on a rollercoaster or on a bike down a big hill! 

What happens in your body if you are feeling scared? Can you think of some of your early warning signs? Task: Draw a picture of you and label your early warning signs! For example, you may feel butterflies in your tummy or you might feel very hot! 


Session 3: Secrets

Can you remember some of your early warning signs? Who could you speak to if you were feeling worried, upset or scared? 

It doesn't matter how small something may seem, we can talk to someone about anything that is on our minds. The key is finding the right person to speak to! We want someone to be understanding, to listen to us, to be kind and to do something to help! Sometimes it is not safe to keep a secret. If we are worried about someone, we would not be able to keep their secret as we would need to help them and make sure they are safe! 

Task: Make a poster to share the message: 'we can talk with someone about anything, even if it feels awful or small'. 


Session 4: Networks

Yesterday, you made a list of who to speak to if you needed help. On your list, can you find...

- An adult 

- An adult from school 

- An adult who doesn't live with you

- A friend

Perhaps you could tell someone that they are on your network and you trust them to speak to them if you have a problem!

Task: Make a list of all the people you can talk to if you had a problem- no matter how small!
