What’s in it for you? Here’s what we can offer…
We’ll bring the Life Education Bus to your school. It’s seriously cool inside with a life-size model of the human body, a huge video screen, a starlit night-sky ceiling (this will definitely make the children go ‘oooh’!) and – everyone’s favourite – Harold the Happy and Healthy Giraffe (trust us, he’s a legend)!
We’ll deliver a Life Education session to each class in the school. There’s a different programme (or lesson) for each Year Group from Nursery / Foundation (3 to 4 year olds) to Year 6 (10 to 11 year olds).
We’ll use a wide range of teaching and learning styles – whole class discussion, paired work, reflection, hands-on activities, dance, drama, games and puppetry (that’s where Harold comes in!) – so that, at some point in every session, every child’s brain is turned on and they are learning in their preferred way.
We’ll teach using lots of very specific positive teaching techniques. These will increase the children’s interest, boost their learning and raise their self-esteem to boot! We will also help each child to feel comfortable, valued and positive about their bodies, health issues and themselves.
We’ll give you a Teachers Resource Pack of follow-up activities that you can use back in class to get the most out of your Life Education visit.
After your visit from the Life Education Bus, staff and pupils can complete our online questionnaires. We’ll then send you a report, summarising the impact of our visit, which you can use as part of your portfolio of evidence for the delivery of PSHE in your school.
