Birds and Bees  is a brand-new show by award-winning writer Charlie Josephine, tailor-made and filmed for secondary school students. Developed with, and for, Year 10 and Year 11 students, it will help teachers address complex topics such as consent, sex positivity, online safety and intersectionality. In response to feedback on the challenges of teaching RSE, our package is designed for use across year groups to facilitate complex conversations in an inclusive and accessible way.

This blended learning package includes a 49 minute digital play and eighteen versatile lesson plans (6 RSE, 6 Drama, 6 English) to aid with the recovery curriculum. All resources are suitable for use in school, in person, or from home (in the case of further Covid-19 restrictions). Find out further details about the package below.

“I want to embrace the messy nuances and present some sticky questions about sex education… It’s my hope that every student will see themselves on stage, and through my characters will feel encouraged to explore the topics with their teachers in a safe and creative way.”- Charlie Josephine
