Use of planners

Planners are to be used to record reading at home and this should include the book title and chapter, or page numbers and should be recorded at least 3 times a week and initialled by parents. Planners need to be signed by parents at the end of each week ready for the teacher to review.

RSE Curriculum

This year we will continue to teach the children using materials from our updated Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) scheme. This edition of ‘Teaching RSE 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. During Summer 2021 term, year 4 will be taught the year 3 and 4 curriculum for RSE as we were not able to teach the RSE curriculum last year due to lockdown.
