PANTS & The Underwear Rule. Learning about staying safe, keeping our private parts private and respecting privacy - supported by content from NSPCC: 05/04/17

The Underwear Rule



This week we have been doing some very important learning at nursery about our bodies and especially PANTS. We have been talking with the children about their bodies, reminding them that their bodies belong to them and that some parts of their bodies are private which is why they are covered up by their pants. We shared a new song from the child friendly song from the NSPCC called Pantosaurus, which supported the childrens learning at an appropriate lever and made the information a little more accessible. The children talked about their own understanding and all had a special leaflet to take home to give to their parents/ carers for further discussion at home.

We will continue to revisit this throughout the year as is a very important aspect

of learning the children's Personal, social and emotional development helping them to learn about themselves, their bodies and their feelings and giving them an understanding which keeps them safe both now and as they get older.

Please read the leaflet we sent home and talk to your child about the appropriate aspects of it's content. For more information and also to share the Pantosaurus song again with your child,
