How are families like trees? How are children like caterpillars?

Containing age-appropriate analogies for key Relationships, Sex and Health Education topics, this book provides carefully constructed, memorable metaphors for teaching some of the trickiest concepts around relationships and sexual development.

Each toolkit opens with a story that draws comparisons between a common childhood experience and a conceptual RSHE topic. Learners are supported in breaking down the analogy, comparing each part of the familiar story to a new concept. Knowledge is deepened with matching games, extension activities and teaching tips.

The book includes:

  • Ready-made toolkits for the classroom
  • Printable activities to engage learners
  • Cross-curricular extension activities within each toolkit to support and enhance lesson plans
  • Clear teaching notes with advice for inclusive and accessible delivery that considers learners’ lived experiences

Crafted by RSHE experts, this off-the-shelf resource offers RSHE teachers, PSHE departments and other educators a thread of consistency across curricula to deliver a seamless learning experience in Key Stage Two and beyond. These skillfully crafted and age-appropriate metaphors are the perfect way to neutralise awkwardness, engage cross-curricular thinking and make learning stick.
