LEARNING ABOUT ONLINE SAFETY AT HOME

www.thinkuknow.co.uk

This can be a very difficult time for most parents. These items are intended to provide you with support and resources to help you learn about online safety at home with your child.

 

Parents and Carers Helpsheets

If you haven’t already, the first thing to do is read our Parents and Carers Helpsheets - there is one for primary (click here) and one for secondary (click here), which could be used for Year 6. 

These contain key online safety advice and links to our resources, as well as support services.

 

Home activity packs

Once you have read the Helpsheets, click on the links below to download your second home activity packs for each age range.

Each pack contains two 15 minute activities to do with your child, using Thinkuknow resources.

The next two will be released in a fortnight’s time. If you would like to view previous home activity packs, they are in the archive below.

• What is the coronavirus?
• How do you catch the coronavirus?
• What happens if you catch the coronavirus?
• Why are people worried about catching the coronavirus?
• Is there a cure for the coronavirus?
• Why are some places we normally go to closed?
• What can I do to help?
• What’s going to happen next?

Reading

One of the most enjoyable and most important things your child can do at home is READ.

Read books, read magazines, read comics, read newspapers, read blogs, just READ!!!

"There are many ways to enlarge your world. Love of books is the best of all."

"Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body."

"To learn to read is to light a fire."

"You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book."

"Everyone is a reader... some just haven't found their favourite book yet."

READ!

Musical Ideas whilst off school


1. Play a concert; Invite your family to the concert - design and print a programme and make tickets.
2. Play the piano/keyboard, any instrument, in your pyjamas!
3. Compose your own piece of music. Write it down or memorize it. Give it a name and play it to an audience – look forward to hearing it too.
4. Learn a piece you haven’t played before - surprise me!
5. Teach yourself to play a favourite TV or film theme tune.
6. With your parents, listen to a piece of piano music on the computer or tablet, by Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven or Rachmaninoff. Write down what you listen to and what you like about it.
7. Watch ‘The Piano Guys’ on YouTube with your parents.
8. Find out about a famous composer or musician. Write a short biography of them.


I hope you enjoy some of these activities. It is not an exhaustive list - you can make up some of your own if you want.
