This Wednesday the children will be taking part in the Keeping Safe lesson about body parts. We will be reading a story called 'Everyone has a bottom' and emphasising the fact that all parts of their body are private. I understand that the children may laugh and giggle when we talk about the anatomical names, but this is important for every child to know.
Recent research shows that knowing the anatomically correct language terms enhances children’s body image, self-confidence, and openness.
This is in conjunction with the Child Protection Curriculum which has been mandated in all schools in Western Australia.
Please find the lesson outline below and a link for the outline of the book if you feel you need to discuss this with your child after Wednesday.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me.
