Dear parents / carers,
You will have seen our email and text reminders last week; regarding R.S.E lessons (or “Relationshops and Sex Education”) beginning in Week 1 of the Summer Term 2.
These are an essential part of the Government’s nationwide National Primary Curriculum and a vital section of both Science and P.S.H.E. learning. The topics covered in Year 5 are centred around Puberty and Menstruation and their corresponding physical & emotional changes, Relationships, Personal Hygiene and Support Networks.
As stated in the email, we will be teaching a range of lessons this half-term concerning this area and will be posting the resources and visual aids to be used in class, on the Year 5 Blog; by way of informing parents and carers of the content and themes being discussed and studied. We hope this may help many at home; to support their children’s understanding surrounding these areas.
Here are the materials for this week’s lesson:
Finally, a reminder that during our lessons, teachers will aim to answer appropriate questions that arise from the children honestly and with detail appropriate to the age and needs of the children.
We fully recognise and support that parents play a vital part in their child’s R.S.E., and we would like to encourage you to explore these questions / topics with your child at home as well. If further advice or support is required, please do not hesitate to send an email to the Year 5 Email address: email@example.com
The Year 5 Team
