Growing and Changing

"Growing and Changing" is a series of lessons taught to children from Years 1-6 in the second half of the Summer term. 

Prior to teaching the lessons, we hold parent workshops, so that parents and carers have the chance to look at all the materials used with the children and to discuss how it is taught. 


Below are the sequence of lessons taught in each year group. 

Year 5

Year 6

Some lessons have parts that are crossed out - this is because we do not teach these aspects of the lessons. You may also notice that some of the Year 5 lessons are labelled "Year 4". This is because we thought it more appropriate to teach some of the Year 4 lessons when the children are a bit older.
