Dimensions Curriculum for Northern Ireland has schemes of work to deliver a creative approach to teaching Personal Development and Mutual Understanding (PDMU) in a joined-up, child-centred and progressive way.
Our ‘3D PDMU’ programme develops fully-rounded children who are self-aware, healthy, independent learners who form healthy positive relationships with adults and other children. It covers key concepts and skills to help schools to fulfil their responsibility to support pupils’ personal development and health as well as mutual understanding in the local and wider community.
3D PDMU Foundation Stage Programme
Meet Lily, Sam and friends! Our colourful characters will engage young children and our well-written, beautifully illustrated stories and clear learning outcomes will appeal to Foundation Stage teachers.
The fully resourced schemes of work cover the key strands of PMDU and give children opportunities to explore:
- Feelings and Emotions
- Health and Safety
- Relationships with Families
- Relationships in School and the Community
- Learning Dispositions
- Developing Resilience and a ‘Can Do’ Attitude
3D PMDU Foundation Stage P1
The P1 programme includes 16 story-based lessons which teach children about the key development areas of Making Relationships, Self-Awareness and Managing Feelings and Behaviour.
3D PMDU Foundation Stage P2
The P2 programme includes 25 story-based lessons designed to teach children about sharing, personal hygiene, E-safety, bullying and much more. It is also accompanied by Pupil Activity Books, which include additional fun activities, related to each focus.
Both of the Foundation Stage programmes come complete with a spiral bound teacher’s guide plus a CD-ROM (so you have both hardcopy and digital). The P2 programme also comes with a set of 10 Pupil Activity Books (additional sets can be ordered in multiples of 10).
