Key Stage 2 eSafety
This term in KS2 our assemblies will be focusing on 'Play Like Share', an animated series about online safety produced by Thinkuknow.
Thinkuknow is an award-winning education programme form the National Crime Agency's child protection command, CEOP. It aims to keep children safe from abuse, both online and in the real world. Thinkuknow education resources are age-appropriate, and give children the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to stay safe online. They are used by over three and a half million children across the UK each year.
'Play Like Share' follows the adventures of Alfie, Ellie and Sam as they form a band and enter their school's Battle of the Bands contest, taking on the mean but 'cool' Popcorn Wizards' as they go. The three friends learn than while the internet can help, they need to use it wisely and safely. The aim of the film is to help children learn how to stay safe online. In particular, the films and activities teach them to spot the early signs of manipulative, pressuring and threatening behaviour by people they might meet online, and develops their confidence to respond safely and get help.
You can watch a short trailer and all three brief episodes of Play Like Share on the link below. It is a great idea for you to watch each episode with your child and to have conversations with them about the subjects covered.
