Your Privates school pack - Orchid lesson plans

The male cancer charity Orchid has produced the Your Privates school pack to help secondary school teachers teach students about the risks of testicular cancer.

The male cancer charity Orchid has produced the Your Privates school pack to help secondary school teachers teach students about the risks of testicular cancer and why testicular self-examination is important. The resource is recommended for use in key stage 4 or upper key stage 3 and is most appropriate for Year 10 classes.

Over 2200 men a year diagnosed with testicular cancer and it is most common among men between the ages 15-45. The aim of this lesson pack is to raise awareness in young men and women of testicular cancer and outline the possible risk factors, causes and treatment involved. Orchid has developed a film embedded PDF presentation, a pack of teachers’ notes and a quiz which are all available to download from the Orchid website.

Lesson plan learning objectives;

  • Learn about testicular cancer, including the demographics, risk factors, and common symptoms

  • Learn how to perform testicular self-examination and why it is important for them all to know how to do this

As a result of this lesson, students will;

  • Understand that they are in the highest risk age group for testicular cancer

  • Be able to identify some risk factors for testicular cancer

  • Recognise the most common symptoms

The PSHE Association is happy to award the Your Privates school pack our Quality mark for resources. We feel teachers will appreciate its focus on encouraging self-examination which is explained in a straight forward and accessible way and its clear learning objectives and outcomes.

The PSHE Association’s Training and Development Lead Jenny Barksfield says;

“Testicular cancer is not the easiest topic for teachers to address in PSHE lessons but an understanding of it is of crucial importance to all young people. We also need to ensure that all young men know how to carry out self-examination.  This resource will be invaluable in supporting teachers to provide this vital learning.”
