Relationships Lesson Plans for PSHE

Some students may find it difficult to cope with the pressure of a serious relationship. In this series of teaching resources, we cover topics such as love, religious aspects, sexuality and emotions.

Lesson 1 – Emotional Aspects of a Relationship

Broken down into 4 activities, students explore the concept of love using pictures, songs and poems. They must then apply some of the characteristics to those they would hope to find in a friend.

Lesson 2 – Looking Closely at the Emotional Aspects

We now introduce some other key terms associated with love, including sex. A series of individual and class activities explore the choice and pressures that students may face.

Lesson 3 – Homosexuality

In this module, students look at the different type of relationships and sexualities and the prejudices they may face. The student activities also involve looking at how different relationships can sometimes clash with religious beliefs.

Lesson 4 – Views on Sex and Relationship Issues

In this final session, students are given the opportunity to consider their feeling through class discussion and group activity.
