Learning - PLAN

1. Remind your child that Jigsaw is their PSHE learning at school and go through the Jigsaw Charter below.


2. Show your child Jigsaw's Jack "treasure box" that you have put together and ask them what they think could be inside it? What items do people usually keep a special box? 


3. Calm me time - Your child is familiar with this from our normal lessons. Remind your child that this helps our minds and bodies to calm down so we are ready to learn. Follow the calm me script below. Instead of a chime you can hit 2 metal spoons together.


4. Show children one of the success pictures at a time ( this can be found below) 

Ask children; do you see success in this picture? Why or why not?

The pictures that show success belong in Jigsaw Jack's treasure box. Begin to help the children associate the treasure chest with success and ensure they understand what success means.


5. Present your child with their success coin. Invite your child to feel proud of their success that you have written on the coin. Ask your child, how do they feel about their coin?


Main activity: Children to create/make their own treasure chest. 

This can be any small box you may have at home or please have a look at the template below for you to make your own one.

Children will decorate these boxes and make it special because this is where they will store their success in. 


Ask children to share with you " I feel proud that i can... " 


Display the treasure box somewhere where the child will see it everyday. 


6. Ask them to give you a thumbs up, thumbs in the middle or thumbs down to show how their learning has gone.
