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:

 

Year 6: Puberty, relationships and reprodcution

Puberty and reproduction

Understanding relationships

Conception and pregnancy

Communication in relationships

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. 

Planners may also be used for notifying us of changes of going home arrangements etc. Alternatively, you can email admin@bridgewater.herts.sch.uk or leave a message on the school's answer machine. 

As part of our preparation for the children's transition to secondary school, during upper Key Stage 2 teachers may ask pupils to note reminders in their planners e.g. items that they need to bring into school, such as resources for a project in their planners, to encourage them to be independent and to take responsibility.
