    Re: Sex education in year 6

    I watched a new sex ed video at my kids school last year, they wanted the parents to watch it before the kids and it was hilarious!

    It was two cartoon characters running round nekkid tickling each other with a feather before they got jiggy with it

    There was a peice about getting pregnant but nothing about contraception or sexually transmitted diseases, it was just basically "in out shake it all about have a baby"

    DS did come back and ask his dad if he tickles me with a feather

      The sum total of our sex education at school was the Biology teacher passing round a Femidom telling us that that was what we all HAD to use.

      Had to give DD a mini lesson tonight, she discovered the hole & asked what it was for & "Look Mummy! Is this where poo poo comes from? Can you see my dinner???" Erm, nooooooo, erm... OK you know when Aunty C had a really big tummy then went to the hospital & came back with Baby S & her tummy was flat again? Well..."

        Yup i remember watching a video too, boys in one class and girls in another talking about periods

        I'll never forget that video its haunted me for years, i remember a cartoon image of a young boy/man and it was saying how their voice gets deeper, he says "Hellllllllllloooooooooooo" in a high pitched Mickey Mouse style voice and then again in the deepest voice i've ever heard, we were wetting ourselves with laughter

          My only memory of sex ed (I went to an all girls' school) was a school health nurse coming into school to talk about periods, showing us a tampon and dunking it in her glass of water to demonstrate it expanding, then removing and merrily carrying on drinking the water It was an unused tampon, but still

          Oh and then we had a talk about contraception the week before we took our GCSEs (so most of us were 16). That was the sum total of sex ed at my school

            In year 6 at our church school, we had a nearly retired teacher who wanted us to learn PROPERLY. So our PSHE lessons started off with learning about personal hygiene and cleaning ourselves. Progressed to acne. (She described in great detail the spot she squeezed that morning) Then puberty. (Think we watched the nekkid family video) We had the school nurse doing a talk with girls, then boys. We got to go and sit on the school field and chat to the nurse which was a great treat! Then we watched a video about pregnancy. This started off with two grown ups having "intercourse" pretty much like a porn video (although she fast forwarded through that) then we got to see the baby grown inside the stomach. Then watched a real birth. Blood and all! Tramatised us!!!

              The period talk is yr 5 so 9/10 yr olds.Dd found it really helpful. My dd is in yr6 and says she thinks the topic on actual sex is in the summer term.

                Did anyone watch a vidwo with Tina Turner in? My friend insists the one we watched had her in

                I remember being seperated from the boy's and talking about periods and being given some sanitary towels. I remember when we all went back into class together and there was a weird atmosphere - god knows what the boy's had been talking about

                Apparently in highschool our class got to put condoms on banana's but I was off sick that day, thankfully.

                OH's sister has a 5 yr old and her school wrote to parents asking if it was ok to talk about homosexuality about it being 'normal' etc OH's sister refused () but I do think 5 is very young, unless it was about relationships and not sex It's difficult to get the full story.

                    As some 5 year olds have two mummies or two daddies I would hope they would want to talk about that side of things, partly to counteract older siblings or relatives talking about how "eww" it is to think of two men/women together (one of my former Rainbows has two mummies. And a daddy. We have not enquired TOO closely).

                    I remember nothing of my own school sex education as my mother had already told me everything! If I had to dredge it up I'd probably imagine they told us about periods far too late, so it's good my mum did. We certainly didn't get anything on periods in primary school, but I did leave primary school in the 1970s.

                        Forgot to add, I went to a Catholic secondary school. We got the usual talks on sex and puberty. But when it came to contraception... we were told not to read chapter 6 of our biology book because it was about contraception...so of course we read it twice. We also had an RE teacher who used to be a nun. She told us the best contraception was an asprin....between the knees.

                          Obviously don't know for sure but I'd imagine it was more in the context of 'we're all different but that's fine - ie some people marry people of the opposite sex and others marry the same sex' sort of thing.
                          I'd guess, anyway! Both of mine know that people can have opposite or same sex partners The other day Adam told me he wanted to marry both my after-school mindees (one boy, one girl) so I had to explain that actually he couldn't do that in the UK, he could pick either one of them but not both at the same time

                            Hahaha I think that was the one we watched - did the guy get wiggling fingers every time he went near a girl???
