RSE DAY Thursday 25th June

Celebrating Positive Relationships 

RSE Day June 25th - RSE Day is a day to celebrate excellent RSE, that promotes the wellbeing of, and safeguards, children and young people.

Relationships and Sex Education is part of the National Programme for PHSCE (Personal, Health, Social and Citizenship) curriculum.

Good quality RSE needs to happen all year round, but 25 June is an opportunity to start new conversations and share what we are doing with others. Because RSE includes learning about relationships in the widest sense and is the responsibility of parents and schools, RSE Day is a great opportunity to share ideas for activities that involve the whole community.

This list of ideas below is designed to inspire us to join in with RSE Day on 25 June 2020.

This year the theme for RSE Day is ‘Books I love about love’ so many of the ideas in this list support this theme.

To comply with current legislation we always inform parents/carers of our plans for RSE Day work in school in advance to give them the option to withdraw their child. Due to the current situation, we have produced this list of ideas to enable parents/carers to take an opt-in approach by choosing to include some of the activities in Home Learning if they wish. Please see the list of suggested activities below, with a Year group indication. Of course, you may wish to choose ideas from another Year Group, as appropriate for your child. 

If you take any photos of RSE activities, please send them to the office@ email address for including on Class Pages on our website.

 

Reception

Create a heart using collage. Find words, colours, shapes and textures from scrap material and packaging, and glue or arrange the materials into a heart shape. Display in your workbook, window, on your pavement or balcony.

Using heart cut-outs ask children to write one thing they love about themselves and one thing they love about somebody else

Year 1

Read the story ‘What colour is love?’ By Linda Strachan. Use heart cut-outs and ask your child to write one thing they love about themselves and one thing they love about somebody else.  Draw each member of your family on a piece of paper bunting (triangle of card or paper) – punch two holes in the top of each one, thread string through to make bunting.

Ask each member of the family to complete the sentence ‘love is…..’ using chalk or a stone to write on the yard or pavement.

Years 2 and 3

Learn how to say phrases such as ‘friend’, ‘I miss you’, ‘I love you’ and ‘thank you for being my friend’ in different languages.

Create a storyboard of ideas of ways to say ‘hello’ to your friends and showing you care through social distancing.

Years

4 and 5

Ask your child to write and deliver a letter or card to someone who is special to them. This might be a member of their family, a neighbour, a friend or someone at school. In the letter they could explain why the person and relationship matters to them. Grown- ups in the family could do the same activity!

Create poems about love. This could be about love for your friends you are missing at this time or love for family members. For inspiration on how to create a poem while going for a walk or using poetry collage have a look at Usborne Quick Links and Tate websites

Year 6

Ask your child to write and deliver a letter or card to someone who is special to them. This might be a member of their family, a neighbour, a friend or someone at school. In the letter they could explain why the person and relationship matters to them. Grown- ups in the family could do the same activity!

Have a discussion with your child about what makes a healthy relationship. Ask them to create a poster using words or themes which come out of your discussion.
