- To understand the different aspects of my identity
Pupils should know:
- That isolation and loneliness can affect children and that it is very important for children to discuss their feelings with an adult and seek support.
- Where and how to seek support (including recognising the triggers for seeking support), including whom in school they should speak to if they are worried about their own or someone else’s mental wellbeing or ability to control their emotions (including issues arising online).
Before the lesson
Pupils needing extra support: May need to work as part of a guided group where they can adapt the example poem by replacing key words.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be challenged to reference different parts of their identity and use more adventurous vocabulary.
