Year 8 have been using their art skills to help with some practical problem solving during our recent PSHE lessons. We introduced the pupils to the idea of a Ring of Choice. Central to this diagram is a problem that the pupils need to overcome. This is placed in the middle of our diagram. Around the Ring of Choice are some solutions or suggestions as to how we might overcome our problem.
We were keen for all Year 8 pupils to consider some solutions for themselves. Some great examples to resolving a simple playground issue were offered up – we could speak with an adult, shake hands or simply walk away from any potential trouble. Year 8 completed this PCHE work by colouring in their Ring of Choice to help the information stand out.
