Today Your Child Learned...

Dear Parent & Guardian, 
We are excited to share that your child has completed the following PSHE lesson. Check out our overview and top tips to support their development...

Today’s PSHE Lesson

My Body Changes (Growing Girls)

Being prepared that puberty is a normal part of growing up is an important part of your child’s development. Reassuring them that the changes are normal. Talking with them openly about your experiences, wherever possible, will make this time less frightening and they will know that they can come to you to talk about their concerns or questions.

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today...

  • Names of the ‘private parts’ of the body (penis, testicles, anus, vulva, vagina, nipples).
  • The obvious external changes that happen to a girl’s body as she grows into a woman.
  • The less obvious changes that happen to a girl’s body as she grows into a woman including menstruation and the need for better personal hygiene.
  • That mammals, including humans, may suckle their young on their own breast milk.
  • How menstruation is a change that occurs to prepare the female body for reproduction.

How You Can Help From Home

Here’s what you can talk about during dinner...

  • Ask your child to tell you the names of the ‘private parts’ and ensure they know where they are located.
  • Ask your child what they know about puberty and the changes that happen to a girls body.
  • Talk to your child about menstruation, so that they understand what happens and how to be prepared if it happens when they’re not at home.
  • Talk to your child about other changes which happen around the time of menstruation eg: mood swings, skin changes,  to help them understand that this is normal.
  • Show your child what a sanitary towel and/or tampon looks like and talk about your experiences of menstruation with them.

Go Above & Beyond 

Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons...

  • Make the discussion light-hearted when discussing growing up but reassure your child that you do understand what they will be going through and that you can help.
  • Ensuring that boys understand menstruation and the accompanying feelings and emotions that may be experienced by girls or women may help to reassure them and enable them to support women and girls that they are living with now and in the future.

When it comes to your child’s development, teachers and parents are better together! By aligning our goals and education techniques, we can better realise our vision of positively preparing your child for their future.

The pupils at our school are really enjoying the lifewise scheme. The scheme is very staff-friendly and easy to monitor. More staff are now teaching lifewise as a consequence and all the DfE statutory guidance (+more) is covered. The staff at lifewise are extremely professional. As it is a digital platform, lessons are constantly being up-dated and improved.

Lifewise is a fantastic tool to use. It is easy and clear to navigate and as well as in class we have used Lifewise during remote learning sessions, whilst in lockdown. I would thoroughly recommend this 'wellbeing session' tool to any school. It is exceptional.

Lifewise was so helpful for my online ELSA sessions. The format gave the children the chance to express their emotions. They loved the quiz and enjoyed the conversation.
