PSHE & Citizenship

Blackout! A cyber-attack has cut off all power across the UK. Shops have run out of food. Black market prices for water and the cost of bread doubles by the hour. There is no end in sight. Public order is breaking down. Should you do the right thing? Or should you do what it takes to survive?

Our five immersive films follows two young people navigating a national crisis and brings to life the importance of building character. The accompanying classroom resources and broad variety of curriculum-linked activities encourage peer-to-peer learning and help your students develop vital life skills such as communication, working under pressure, working as part of a team and problem solving, all of which will last a lifetime.

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. 
Lesson 4 and 5: Using compassion and empathy to suggest a resolution to conflict, and how compassion can contribute to a healthier society.

Drawing on the Army’s core values, this suite of innovative PSHE resources supports schools in fulfilling an essential part of the Ofsted Framework: their character education provision.
