Lessons in being happy proposed

And another report announced :-) on the future generation of HAPPYMAKERS & HAPPYMAKEES. Many thanks to Andy Piper for that :-)

So what's in? Primary school pupils in England should be taught how to lead happy and healthy lives as part of a curriculum overhaul, says a government-commissioned report.The report also says individual subjects should be replaced by six themed "areas of learning"(this could also include using the internet for research, word-processing work and making podcasts.)

The report by former senior Ofsted inspector Sir Jim Rose suggests lessons should be more focused on preparing children for life outside school. His interim report, to be officially published later, says teaching children about emotional well-being and social skills should be a compulsory part of the curriculum.

It says that pupils should have the "personal, social and emotional qualities essential to their health, well-being and life as a responsible citizen in the 21st Century".

Look forward for the full report and the babies learning how to spell POD-CATS? POD- CAST :-)
