In class today we have been looking at the PANTS rules, as explained by a lovely character called Pantasaurus! As part of out PSHE lessons, it is important that in Year 1 we know that 'what's in our pants' is private so we have been looking at the rules about our private parts in a fun and relaxed way. Pantasaurus taught us a song to help us to remember his simple rules to keep us safe. We also talked about the correct biological terminology for boy and girl private parts and all had a bit of a giggle about some of the nicknames that we use for them. The children found it very funny when I told them that some grown ups are too shy to use the real words - how silly! Some of the children enjoyed the lesson and liked the character Pantasaurus so much that they chose to make their own picture of him during choosing time!
Have a look below at the PANTS rules below for more details and there is also a link to the song - although it will get stuck in your head for an hour or two if you are not careful!
