Loss and Bereavement PSHE Topic  Years 5 & 6

This half term we will be delivering two lessons on families and divorce and two lessons on loss, grief and bereavement to year 5 and 6 as part of our PSHE curriculum. These lessons will come at the end of their topic on Relationships, just before half term.


Loss, grief and bereavement are an inevitable part of our lives, so members of our school community will have experienced significant losses or will do so in the future. With the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II yesterday, it will be an opportunity to talk about this. We think it is important to provide the children with the skills they need to manage difficult feelings, to understand grief and be able to support others.


Our teachers have been trained to deliver this sensitive area of the curriculum and will use age appropriate materials {story books / film clips / poems} to support learning.


It is possible your child will come home and ask you questions about this topic. You may find it helpful to look at the information and resources on the website of Winston’s Wish, a child bereavement charity or to watch the following short video, which explains one way of looking at grief and grieving.  See the link below.


If you would like to know more about these lessons please contact us and we can discuss it.

Most importantly, if your child has experienced a significant loss or bereavement, recently or in the past, or if there is a family member or friend who is seriously ill, please contact your child’s {PSHE / class teacher}. We can discuss with you whether it is appropriate for them to be in the lesson and be prepared to give them any additional support they may need.

Every day we try to be the Best we Can whether at home or at school. We aim to come to school eager to learn something new, to grow our talents, and to become the very best person we can be. We aim head home from school, and keep learning, sharing our experiences, our adventures and our friendships with our family.


We encourage parents to be involved in your child's learning, but if you would like further information then please talk to your class teacher.

"As the school staff down tools for Christmas holidays, the children let their imaginations shine through and using their tools in our design and technology lessons, some brilliant buggies were brought to life.

It was brilliant to see them journey from the planning stage, right through to the build stage and overcoming all the challenges in between.

Could we have discovered a future star of the design world? Who knows. Either way, we were very proud of the hard work from the children and buggies they created."
