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, Your Body (Boys And Girls)
This lesson seeks to let pupils know that their body will soon begin to change and reassure them that this is quite normal. Ensuring that they know about the body parts that are called ‘private parts’ and the specific names for these will help them to discuss the topic. It will help them to understand terminology used now and later in their learning and it will help them to accurately report any instances of inappropriate touch that they may encounter. It is about keeping pupils safe and talking openly about their body belonging to them and the parts that are particularly private.
What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson
Here’s what we went through today...
- Where their ‘private parts’ are located and the names of these (anus, nipples, vulva, vagina, testicles and penis).
- Keeping these ‘private parts’ covered especially in public.
- Their body belonging to them and they have discussed how situations where they feel uncomfortable or scared about inappropriate touch should be talked about with a trusted adult.
- How their body changes and how humans may feed their young with their own milk through nipples.
- How female breasts develop to feed their young and their hips widen to accommodate baby development.
- How the male body grows bigger including the penis and testicles.
How You Can Help From Home
Here’s what you can talk about during dinner...
- Ask your child if they know the names of the ‘private parts’ and where they are.
- Ask your child why they are called ‘private parts’.
- Remind them who they can talk to if they are afraid or uncomfortable with anyone touching their body that they know.
- Talk about how they were fed as a baby and how they grew and developed.
Go Above & Beyond
Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons...
- Look at family photos together and talk about development from birth.
- Talk about the changes that the body goes through in the human life cycle and how it prepares the body for producing offspring.
- Use the names that your child has been taught in the lesson at home when you discuss these body parts.
- Remind them regularly who they can talk to if they are worried or if they have questions.
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.
