Jigsaw Teaching Programmes for Primary Schools (Ages 5-11)

Jigsaw’s range of inspired teaching programmes focus on developing each child’s emotional literacy, social skills, well‑being and uniqueness through curriculum programmes for RE and PSHE (taught inside and outdoors), at the same time as enhancing the ‘whole‑school community’ ethos with assemblies, Games for lunchtimes and the Jigsaw Families Programme for supporting parents.

Jigsaw RE is a comprehensive Religious Education scheme of learning for ages 3-11.

Written by RE specialist teachers in the Jigsaw team and trialled by 100 schools, the weekly lesson plans include all the resources required to deliver exciting RE. An integral assessment process and accompanying assemblies make Jigsaw RE the first of its kind, and the vehicle to transform statutory RE in the primary school.

It adopts an enquiry-based approach to teaching and learning with much flexibility and choice of when to include which religion/worldview.

Jigsaw Outdoors - Learning ABOUT nature IN nature and enhancing PSHE

The Jigsaw Outdoors Programme provides high-quality, engaging outdoor learning experiences for all children, with a unique link to the PSHE curriculum. The programme can be used as a stand-alone set of 6 lessons for each year group, one for each half-term through the year.

Jigsaw Outdoors aims to connect or re-connect children with nature; to engender awe, wonder and respect for the environment; and to empower them to experiment, explore and enjoy enriching learning experiences outdoors.

Jigsaw Games

The lunchtime supervisors' best friend

Jigsaw Games aim to support lunch time supervisors, and children themselves, to encourage groups to play constructively together enjoying more traditional playground games. Some are re-imagined old games and some are new, dreamt up by the Jigsaw Team.

Play improves the cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being of children and young people.

In addition, quality playtimes benefit children’s academic attainment and improve behaviour both in the playground and afterward in the classroom.

What's included?

  • 72 Games Cards, 12 on each of the 6 lanyards

  • Each lanyard has 6 games for younger children and 6 games for older children, aligned to the Jigsaw PSHE theme for that half-term
  • Simple instructions

  • 3 short training videos (accessed on the Jigsaw Outdoors portal for schools who also have membership to the Jigsaw Outdoors Programme)


Constructive playtimes create more teaching time.
