Programme Info

Designed for P6 pupils, Choices & Changes aims to introduce pupils to the changes they will face as they go through the process of puberty. This will be the focus throughout the 1 hour presentation and will include a reassuring gender-specific puberty talk. The presentation will also remind pupils of their uniqueness, value and worth as well as highlighting the importance of thinking through decisions on the basis of what is best for them personally.

Storyline Context

In each programme we create a storyline to help us share our information effectively throughout the Key Stages. This creates an opportunity for the pupils to consider the information objectively. There are a number of characters in our story, but Oscar and Martha are the hero characters. They feature throughout all the programmes, growing up with the pupils through their school years.

Choices & Changes | Setting the scene

In “Choices and Changes”, our story takes us to the most anticipated day of the school year, Sports Day! We’ll look at how each character has different strengths: some are great at running, others are good at teamwork in the relay race and others are great at helping people on the first aid team. We’ll show how the characters (and pupils) are so perfectly unique and good at different things. We’ll look at different goals we might have for the future and the steps we can put in place to get there by making good choices along the way. We’ll start to look at puberty and how our choices can help us through this wonderful process.

Topics covered in this presentation:

  • Self-esteem & uniqueness
  • Coping with pressure
  • Making healthy choices
  • Preparing for change (school, friends, body, etc.)
  • Puberty: what to expect
  • Kindness & supporting others
  • How to get help (helping them identify their trusted adults, from whom they can seek help)
