- To understand the biology of conception
Pupils should know:
- About menstrual wellbeing including the key facts about the menstrual cycle
- Some of this lesson goes beyond the requirements of the statutory guidance however the DfE recommends that it is good practice for children to understand how a baby is conceived and born before going to secondary school
Pupils needing extra support: May need further consolidation around the process of When a male sperm joins a female egg and a baby starts to grow…. and can use Activity: Sequencing with images for the activity.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be challenged to write their own sequence of conception without the aid of Activity: Sequencing.
