In PSHCE the children in Year 3 have been learning about seeing things from other people’s point of view.
To demonstrate this in a practical way the children enjoyed an engaging lesson using real worms! The children had to decide whether or not we should let the worm out of the cup and were split into 2 groups, yes and no. Then they came up with their reasons and explained these to the opposing side. This helped the children to see the other side of the argument.
After the lesson the children were allowed to choose if they wanted to help let the worms go free in the BFG.
At the end of the lesson the children were encouraged to write down some of their ideas about why it is important to consider the viewpoints of other people. Here are some of their responses:
It is important to consider the viewpoints of other people because:
‘maybe you could be doing something bad and other people’s point of view can change it’
‘we should listen to other people’
‘if you didn’t listen you might get hurt’.
