PSHE & Citizenship
Time requirement: 5x lessons 45–60 minutes
Blackout! A cyber-attack has cut off all power across the UK. Shops have run out of food. Black market prices double by the hour. Public order is breaking down. How will students choose to act?
The resources follow two young people navigating a national crisis and highlight the importance of character building. Led by immersive films, the five curriculum-linked lessons develop students' vital life skills such as communication, working under pressure, teamwork and problem solving.
Lesson 1: How showing respect can help diffuse tension and resolve conflict.
Lesson 2: Why integrity is important for learning.
Lesson 3: What it means to be resilient and strategies to complete tasks under pressure.
Lessons 4 and 5: Use compassion and empathy to suggest a resolution to conflict and contribute to a healthier society.
Drawing on the Army's core values, this suite of innovative PSHE / Health and Wellbeing learning materials encourage peer-to-peer learning and support schools in fulfilling character education provision, an essential part of the Ofsted Framework. Each lesson can be delivered independently but works best if both are delivered in sequence.
