Each Puzzle has six lessons (Pieces) which work towards an ‘end product’, for example, The School Learning Charter or The Garden of Dreams and Goals. Each lesson has two ‘Learning Intentions’: one is based on specific PSHE learning (covering the non-statutory national framework for PSHE Education but enhanced to address children’s needs today); and one is based on emotional literacy and social skills (covering the SEAL learning intentions but also enhanced). The enhancements mean that Jigsaw is relevant to children living in today’s world as it helps them understand and be equipped to cope with issues like body image, cyber bullying, and internet safety.  An element of SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural) development is incorporated in every lesson and contributes to these aspects of children’s development. This is mapped on each lesson and balanced across each year group.
