Autumn 1

Community Explorers

This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the shops or down to the playing fields? Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mums and dads were young. Make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes. What can we find? Whereabouts do you live? Do you know your address? Ready to roll explorers? It’s time to start investigating.

Autumn 2

Pop Up

Prince Charming is going to marry Cinderella. He has asked if you could design and make wedding invitations for all his friends and characters who live in Fairyland. He has asked if the invitations can be very special, containing moving parts and mechanisms. When you have made your invitation, he would like you to take a photograph of it and email it to him, so he can choose his favourite.

The Scented Garden

Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs. Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watch them grow beneath the sunshine and showers.

At Woodmansterne, in PSHE, we teach statutory Relationships and Health Education, which includes Sex Education in Year 6. In this unit, 'Growing and Changing', we cover some important and sensitive topics relating to body parts, puberty, relationships, keeping safe and changing feelings, in an age-appropriate way. This leaflet has been designed to support you in talking to your child about these subjects at home, and to prepare you for any questions that your child may have.
