PUBERTY DROP DOWN DAY: The puberty workshop supports pupils to understand how their bodies are changing, how they are feeling and why. It helps them to further develop the language that they use to talk about their bodies, health and emotions.
LINKS TO STATUTORY GUIDANCE: Health Education, Theme: Health and prevention. Changing adolescent body.
A survey of over 2,000 young people aged 11-25 found that nearly a third of young people (30.4%) did not learn all they needed to at school about how their body changes during puberty
Play-doh body parts make up the start of this completely open and honest workshops. Where we learn about growing up and how bodies change through puberty.
The workshop provides the opportunity to ask questions and honest and age-appropriate answers are given.
The session builds on learning in primary, providing a more in-depth exploration, debate and open discussion about beauty standards and media impact around body hair, relationships and other teen angst.
