Year 1

Relationships Education will put in place the building blocks needed for positive and safe relationships, including with family, friends and online. Your child will be taught what a relationship is, what friendship is, what family means and who can support them. In an age-appropriate way, your child will cover how to treat each other with kindness, consideration and respect. Health Education aims to give your child the information they need to make good decisions about their own health and wellbeing, to recognise issues in themselves and others, and to seek support as early as possible when issues arise.


Through discussion and simple activities, your Year 1 child will be learning:

  • To identify a range of feelings and how others might be feeling by reading body language and facial expressions.
  • To know how it feels to belong to a family and care about the people that are important to them.
  • To recognise emotions and feelings associated with being unsafe.
  • To explain the difference between unkindness, teasing and bullying.
  • To recognise which foods we need to eat more and less of to be healthy.
  • To know that good practices with regard to exercise, eating, sleeping and hygiene can contribute to good health.
  • To know how diseases can be spread.
  • To explain the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touch.
  • To know the correct names for the parts of their body, including the parts that are private.
  • To respect their body and understand which parts are private.
