Winston's Wish: Lessons on loss and bereavement, KS1-4

Winston's Wish: Lessons on loss and bereavement, KS1-4

Comprising two lessons for each key stage, these resources are designed to help pupils and students explore bereavement and grief in developmentally appropriate ways. They are not intended as a pastoral intervention in the event of a bereavement in the school community, as at that point the priority is for pastoral care rather than preventative education.

The lessons are also not suitable for home learning, but can be used with pupils who are physically in school now, or planned into your programme to deliver face-to-face later in the year.

At key stages 1 and 2, pupils will:

  • Learn about different types of loss, change and bereavement
  • Explore some strategies for managing feelings associated with bereavement
  • Develop their awareness of how to seek support with feelings

At key stages 3 and 4, students will:

  • Learn about managing emotions associated with grief
  • Explore how to support others experiencing grief and loss
  • Develop an awareness of how loss, grief and bereavement can impact young people

The free resource packs include a teacher guidance document along with a lesson plan and PowerPoint for each lesson.

We are very pleased to award our Quality Mark to these important lessons from Winston’s Wish. The lessons approach learning about the topics of loss, bereavement and grief in a developmentally appropriate, relevant way. Teachers are supported with useful guidance and well planned lessons which will promote confidence in teaching this vital subject, and support a sensitive approach to the learning.
