Tell Me More: Film And Teaching Pack
The film ‘Tell Me More’ supplies facts about relationships and sex in clear and graphic ways for KS3 students – and it does so in a witty and light-hearted manner, using a dramatic storyline and explanatory animations. It aims to fill these knowledge gaps before playground gossip takes over.
In a hectic secondary school, two bags get mixed up and a boy discovers an older girl's diary in her bag. Full of curiosity about the opposite sex, he cannot resist reading it. Meanwhile, Nancy Jones is magically released from a sex education book written by her in the 1940s, and becomes determined to update it for the present day. Nancy becomes a willing mentor to the boy (who is on the run from the older girl) and other bemused students on her quest around the school.
“Provides lesson plans and resources you can photocopy and clear guidance on how to use the film in a session. All the hard work has been done for you”
- Elaine Syratt, Named Nurse for safeguarding, Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust
Take a look at our Top Tips before delivering your sessions.
Topic Areas: Sexual intercourse and orgasms, conception and labour, contraception and STI's, menstrual cycles, sanitary protection, masturbation, erections and wet dreams, pornography, body image, different types of families, love and relationships, same sex relationships, sexual awareness, emotional readiness, and legal age of consent.
Health professionals Janet Catto and Elaine Syratt suggest:
- Keep your sense of humour and don’t be afraid to say 'that we are not dealing with this today but we will later.'
- Consider the content of the film and relate to the group as appropriate. You may want to consider splitting the group, for example by gender or smaller sizes, or in terms of their maturity.
- Consider the TA support in the room, and their own confidence and familiarity with content.
- You may want to borrow a body board which is a body outline of a male/female for a question and answer session. Or perhaps sketch your own.
- You can agree that we will not reveal any personal information about ourselves or other pupils e.g. Jared fancies Alysha. If a student does start to discuss a person you can quickly remind them about the ground rules.
The Whole School Approach
The resources available on this website have been developed in the context of a Whole School Approach to Relationships and Sex Education.
In Walsall we have found that this approach achieves the most successful positive outcomes for young people. Before using them we strongly recommend that practitioners consider the following:
• SRE policy
• Referral pathway for vulnerable young people
• SRE/PSHE curriculum
• Engagement of partners e.g. NHS specialists
• Staff confidence and current CPD opportunities
• Current National recommendations –policies, national curriculum etc.
