Living and Learning: RSE

Thursday 14 July 2022

Year 6 have been enjoying our recent RSE learning – this is relationships and sex education. I’ve been really impressed by the maturity the children have shown during the lessons. The first couple of sessions focused on vocabulary – making sure the children understood the anatomical names for the body parts. This links well with their science learning also. We reminded the children about the NSPCC PANTS campaign that promotes the fact that privates are private, always remember your body belongs to you,  no means no, talk about things that might upset you and speak up, someone can help. We’ve then moved on to talk about changes that happen during puberty, and, finally, we’ve learnt about reproduction. The children have shown great respect and empathy during these sessions.
