The Jigsaw curriculum is split into six different units for each year group. Please follow the link below to find out more about these individual units.
Jigsaw, is a primary Scheme of Work for PSHE education, including 288 lesson plans and supporting teaching materials. The whole school engages in one theme at a time across all year groups, with 6 themes over the course of a year, one per half term. Each unit is launched with an assembly and each Puzzle works towards a whole school piece of work each term.
- The teaching strategies outlined are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation. All teaching resources - such as Powerpoint presentations, interactive games and activities are provided.
- The included ‘Jigsaw friends’ characters are unique to each year group and integral to each lesson. They are valuable teaching aides, especially for issues some pupils may consider sensitive.
- The Scheme of Work also focuses on developing mindfulness techniques and enhancing pupils’ learning and personal development, therefore supporting the self- regulation of emotion, building of emotional resilience and enhancement of pupil focus and concentration, while building the capacity to learn.

Curriculum overview per year group
Dreams and Goals!
This half term we are learning from the unit Dreams and Goals. Dreams and Goals aims to help children think about their hopes and dreams, their goals for success, what personal strengths are, and how to overcome challenges, via team work skills and tasks. There is also a focus on enterprise and fundraising. Children learn about experiencing and managing feelings of pride, ambition, disappointment, success; and they get to share their aspirations, the dreams and goals of others in different cultures/countries,
and their dreams for the world.
We create lots of lovely work and show our ideas in our good work assemblies!
