Today, we began the first of several sessions focussing on puberty.

The children listened to a story called ‘Hair in funny places’ by Babette Cole. The story focuses on the changes that happen to boys and girls during puberty.

Over the coming weeks, we will further investigate these changes and talk about possible strategies to help the children deal with them.

We will then split the year group into boys and girls – Mrs Colgrave will be discussing the female changes and Mr Faithfull will be talking to the boys.

Finally, there will be a question and answer session. Children will be able to submit anonymous questions if they wish.

Please contact your child’s class teacher should you have any questions.
