At Waterloo Primary we have a curriculum that:
· promotes spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development
· prepares our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life
· promotes British values
As a whole school approach, we follow a scheme called Jigsaw which we adapt to reflect the needs of our local area and community.
The Jigsaw Friends are used within lessons as the ‘talking object’ in circle discussions.
They support children to have their turn to talk or to offer a suggestion, experience or feeling relevant to the discussion.
The Jigsaw Friends enable children to talk about potentially more sensitive issues without referring directly to themselves.
We deliver Jigsaw as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. Each Puzzle begins with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike.
