Thanks duckyfuzz So how does this fit in with PHSE? What exactly do they learn, or is it a discussion type thing?

It is all realted to learning and removing barriers to learning eg how to work as a team in the Getting on and Falling out unit and starting a new school year in the New Beginnings unit.
It is all stuff to help them reflect on their learning and maximise learning opporunities. It is taught through discussion, circle time, games, stories and some written/drawn activites as well as assemblies so the same vocabulary is being used across the school. It is very good. I rate it and my class like it alot.

Thank you for that, i'll have a look at that link, belgian bun.
All i could get out of ds2 (yr4) was its a bit like PHSE & philosophy all together.
DS2 Yr1 just looked blankly but actually i could see it really benefiting him as he has quite complex special needs.

Thanks again for the info.
