On line safety in the Early Years

Free online safety resources

During the COVID-19 outbreak, Thinkuknow are providing #OnlineSafetyAtHome resources tailored for children of all ages including early years.

EYFS aged 4-5 years

Activity 1: Watch Jessie & Friends, Episode 1

Find the Jessie & Friends cartoons at: www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/jessie-and-friends-videos/

Watch Episode 1: Watching Videos with your child.  Use open questions to chat about the cartoon. For example: o What did you think about the cartoon? Which were your favourite parts? o How did Jessie feel when she watched ‘The Funny Tummy’ video? o How did she feel when she watched ‘The Happy Croccy’ video? How did her feelings change? o How did she get help to feel better?  Finish by having fun singing along together at the end!

Activity 2: Draw your own Dog

 Using what you have available (paper, pens, pencils, crafts etc.), you and your child can draw/design your own Dog! Be as creative as you’d like.  If your child can write, ask them to include their favourite lyrics from the song.  If your child can’t yet write, ask them to tell you their favourite part of the song, and add it to their picture for them.  We’d love to see your work! If you like, find us on Facebook (Click CEOP) and share a photo of your child’s picture. Artwork only please. Do not share your child’s name or any pictures of your child.
