What Early Years settings are sayingActual quotes from people already using the scheme
Breda International School (Netherlands)
The children now use Jigsaw language in daily play and this has helped strengthen their relationships, self-awareness, self-confidence and develop skills in managing their own feelings and behaviour, making them more mindful of the feelings of their peers.
We are currently focusing on developing health and fitness and Jigsaw is proving to be a great tool for supporting this.
Quotes from Children (aged 3-5)
“We can talk to Jenie and cuddle him/her”
“I like using Jigsaw Jenie”
“I like doing the chime and when we breathe rainbow breath”
Parkgate House School
The children really enjoyed the songs and the Calm Me time with the chime.
Cardiff Cathedral School
Jigsaw is a very prominent part of our classroom, with the children often referring to the activities they have undertaken. These activities can permeate the whole curriculum and support each area of learning.
“The children have been able to use Jigsaw Jenie in all areas of EYFS learning”
Mrs Sherwood – Head Teacher.
Practitioners found the children seemed calmer using the chime and were interested and engaged better sitting in a group. They like Jigsaw Jenie and this helped with learning about sharing, as they passed it around. Jenie also seemed to focus them better.
Parents were interested to hear about mindfulness and how they could benefit from learning skills to help them relax. They were keen to chat as a group and talk about themselves and what skills could be shared for them to use. They were all aware of the term ‘wellbeing’ and wanted to learn more.
The Gateway School
The breadth of Jigsaw enables us to explore many different areas through lessons assemblies and the schools mentoring process. For instance, the Celebrating Difference unit allows the school to encompass a more national and international perspective.
We also provide yearly Sex and Relationship Education training to our parents delivered by Jigsaw staff. We believe strongly in working in partnership with our parents on this matter. To do this, parents need to view the lesson resources and animations in order to support the delivery of key messages so that our pupils obtain knowledge and understanding around relationships.
“We believe that the use of Jigsaw assists us in maintaining outstanding pastoral care for our pupils”
Quote – Adam Atkinson Head of Pastoral Care
