Each year group will recap and reinforce their understanding of what was taught in the rse session, part 1. This session also allowed time to address any questions or concerns that had been put in the cosmic post box.
Year 1/2: Watched the pants video first. They then helped Miss Tester to label the body parts of both a girl and a boy. Finally, to finish the rse session the children coloured in swimming costumes or trunks for the Warren Park monkeys to wear.
The longitudinal study involved looking for bugs. They had to consider how the weather might affect what they find.
Why would the weather affect what you find?
What did you find?
Did you see a bug you did not expect to see?
Were there any bugs you thought you might see but didn’t?

The longitudinal study covered the bird spotting for this term.
What birds were there around the grounds?
Do you think the weather affected the quantity of birds you saw?
Which bird was spotted the most?
