Important- RSHE content in the coming weeks

The Life to the Full programme is based on the structure of ‘A Model Catholic RSE Curriculum’ by the Catholic Education Service. This model curriculum was highlighted as a work of good practice by the Department of Education so we therefore have confidence that the programme will be fit for purpose in supporting the growth and development of your child. 

 

Life to the Full is much more than a series of lessons. It is an entire platform of creative resources that will engage, inform and inspire our children and, indeed, you as parents. This includes interactive video content, story-based activities, employing a wide range of teaching tools, original worship music and an accompanying programme of classroom prayers. 

 

In addition, there will be an online parent platform so that you, as parent and carers, can engage with the teaching and deepen the experience for your child. 

 

To access the online parent platform please visit: www.tentenresources.co.uk/parent-portal 

 

As part of our subscription to "Life to the Full", all parents will be able to access the Online Parent Portal with the following login credentials: 

 

Parent Portal https://www.tentenresources.co.uk/parent-portal/ 

Username ol-kenelm-b63 

Password alton-towers 

 

Life to the Full is intended to be partnership between home, school and church. We know that you already do a fantastic job and we see our new programme, Life to the Full, as a means to further develop, support and enrich the partnership between home, school and church so that your child is fully supported. 

 

We will be exploring Life cycles as part of Unit 4. Life Cycles explores the miraculous nature of human conception and birth and offers an opportunity for thanksgiving. (Note that sexual intercourse is not discussed in this unit.) The children will be introduced to some of the key scientific terminology that surrounds conception. Death and life after death is further discussed, alongside the complexities of grief where children will consider ways to support themselves and others.

 

Many Thanks
Miss Carey :)

Stone Age Costumes for Class Assembly
Our class assembly is on the 8th February 2024 at 2.30pm. Parents and carers are invited to join us to see what we have been working hard on. Children will be sent home with their lines to practise. Please can the children know their lines from memory by 22.01.24 as we will begin practising next week.

 

For the assembly we are asking children to provide their own Stone Age costumes. You can be as creative as you wish. You could make a Stone Age tunic (see image below) or alternatively your child can wear dark coloured bottoms and a brown top. You may want to cut a jagged edge on your brown top. Please can children wear black pumps (ideally) or trainers with their costume. Please can you send your child's costume into school by Friday 2nd February 2024 in a labelled bag.

 

Thank you for your continued support, it is greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks,
