During the Week of 8th July 2019, Y5 and 6 will be watching 'Busy Bodies' a DVD which covers the Sex and Relationships program for Upper Key Stage 2 - the accompanying booklet contains images and information from the DVD.
The booklet will be viewed as an animated DVD, which is approximately 25 mins long - it may be seen in sections with follow up question and answer sessions. These sessions will take place during the week of Monday 18th June.
Y5 will be covering these sections of the DVD/Booklet: Introducing Puberty, Why does puberty happen, What happens to girls, What happens to boys and Enjoying Growing up - all of these materials cover the Science National Curriculum objectives about stages of development. Y6 will also look at these units plus Making Babies - if Y6 parents wish to withdraw their child from this section they can discuss the content at home instead.
A copy of the booklet is available on the website to discuss with your child - if they have any questions they can write them down and place them in the question box in their class - or discuss them at home with you.
School Governors, including Parent Governors have viewed the materials and commented that they are them highly useful and appropriate for the age range.
