SRE Curriculum

This year we will continue to teach the children using materials from our new Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) scheme. This new edition of ‘Teaching SRE with Confidence in Primary Schools’ reflects the recent developments in SRE and the Science National Curriculum. This resource encourages children to develop the skills of listening, empathy, talking about feelings and relationships with families and friends.


All the lessons have a clear structure and are age appropriate. The lesson plans have clear aims and learning outcomes with suggested additional activities and accompanying resources:

We went for a lovely Autumn walk and collected lots of Autumn treasures that we then used to create patterns and art work.
We enjoyed making and eating pizza, just like the Little Red Hen.
It was fun celebrating Go Go Bear's birthday, we made cakes and party hats and wrote invitations in preparation for the party.
The big balance scales that Grace's dad has made us are really good fun!
Remembrance Day.
Lots of thinking, how many different ways can you make 5?
We loved playing pirates, we went for adventures on our ship, made treasure maps and telescopes, and even dug up some 'real' treasure.

Chinese New Year was great fun. We made lots of dragons, we made stir fry and ate it using chopstick, we even found chocolate coins in our lucky red envelopes.
Oh no! some of our toys have gone missing! We became detectives and hunted for clues.
During cultural week Miss Mitchell taught us all about Australia. We loved creating some aboriginal art and learning about Australian animals.
