PSHE education is a school curriculum subject that helps children and young people stay healthy, safe and prepared for life and work in Britain. When taught o the younger generation, PSHE education also helps pupils achieve their academic potential.
PSHE stands for personal, social, health and economic education is an important and necessary part of all pupils education. Most PSHE education became statutory in September 2020 under the Children and Social Work Act.
A DfE evidence review highlighted the subject’s importance to children and young people’s wellbeing and knock-on effects on academic achievement, stating that ‘The evidence shows that personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education can improve the physical and psychosocial well-being of pupils. A virtuous cycle can be achieved, whereby pupils with better health and well-being can achieve better academically, which in turn leads to greater success’.
Thermoplastic markings not only give an aesthetic look to your outdoor play environment but are also great when teaching children outside the classroom as well on their dinner / break times. Creating a safe yet enjoyable play environment for young learners is essential in all occasions. Although, when introducing PSHE with playground markings children not only have a valuable learning experience, they also promote physical activity.
At Uniplay we have many playground markings which are great when introducing PSHE lessons. Such as, our Aspirations Hopscotch, this allows children of all ages to express how they are feeling while playing fun traditional playground games! As we can create just about anything at Uniplay, you can customise the vibrant colours and words to suit your school values!
Not only that, we also have our emotions playground markings, such as, How Do You Feel Today? Which is great for entrances / exits within your outdoor play area to allow children to express their emotions, with a teacher or a friend.
All our markings are produced in a hard wearing, non toxic, anti slip high quality thermoplastic material and cut by a water-jet for a really intricate finish. If there is something in particular you don’t see in our brochure, as everything is developed in house, our design team can produce bespoke playground markings for your consideration.
It is so important today to teach children what is yet to come when they enter the adult world while having fun. Playground markings are a great way to teach emotions, physical health even anti bullying. Furthermore, playground markings improve young leaners, motor skills, social interaction and promote literacy.
We have multiple games and thermoplastic markings which link perfectly to PSHE such as our friendship stops. These are a perfect way to allow young people to stand on the spot and make a new friend, and to teach sharing, kindness, and social interaction.
