This course will enable teachers to explore:
- What is Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural Education?
- How the knowledge & skills associated with SMSC can be in a creative & engaging way
- How they might use the free SMSC resources – which include 8 days of lesson plans for Reception to Year 6 – on the ConnectED TSA website
The course aims to develop teachers’ knowledge & understanding of:
Spiritual – how teachers enable children to reflect on their own personal wellbeing in terms of body, mind & spirit. They will have the opportunity to ask higher level questions to grow in self-awareness for their healthy, balanced, long-term personal development.
Moral – how teachers challenge pupils to consider their own moral boundaries & where these have come from. They will have their thinking extended through deepening their reasoning skills.
Social – how teachers support children in developing a sense of self, taking a look at their strengths & weaknesses, & questioning what their unique potential may be. Providing opportunities to explore what drives them as a person, & ask fundamental questions about themselves & their place in the world.
Culture – how teachers develop children’s understanding of what culture is & how it manifests in the world around us. Providing opportunities to examine the culture from which they come (ROOTS), which cultures challenge or influence them (GROWING) & how this shapes their fluid cultural identity (SHOOTS).
