My Life 4 Schools (www.mylife4schools.org.uk) is a ground-breaking free Citizenship and PSHE teaching resource for teachers of children aged seven to 11, produced by The Children's Society in association with our Good Childhood Inquiry.
The aim of My Life 4 Schools is to help children aged seven to 11 develop the skills they need for a healthy, happy childhood. The resource has been developed in consultation with primary school teachers and supports:
- the National Curriculum in England for Citizenship and PSHE
- Every Child Matters
- Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL).
Irrespective of the age and ability of the children, you will find that all the resources are accessible and appealing to all.
The online case studies are highly visual, child-friendly and easy to navigate. They also include a voiceover to assist in comprehension. The follow-up interactive activities have been designed to be accessible to children of all abilities and can be tackled at the children's own pace - individually, with a partner or in a small group. There are numerous opportunities for the children to engage in meaningful discussions about issues that concern them directly.
