Watch over me

 

At a recent meeting of the PSHE subject group, we were reminded of a great resource, exploring personal safety for young people.

Originally funded by the Milly Dowler charity – the Watch over me series is filmed as a soap opera.  I’ve only been able to find it on YouTube – the link to the first one is here

I’ve also managed to find a link to a PDF of resources.

If you need any more info and are unable to find it, please contact Suzanne Oram at Mearns Castle, I know they are still using the resource.

 

One good deed deserves another…

This story really interested me…

When Luke Cameron decided to do a good deed every day for a year, he could never have anticipated how much it would change his life.

The 26-year-old from Cheltenham made the decision after a close family friend died from cancer in 2013.

He started writing a Good Deed blog and logged every kind gesture he made on the site, which has now amassed thousands of followers.

This gave me an idea – I’m sure this would work as a class project.  It covers ICT, citizenship, HWB, literacy – and plenty more!

His blog is full of ideas.  Click the picture below to check it out.
