Hello everyone,

Hope you are all safe and enjoying time with your families.

We have added some further links for next week’s home learning. It is really important that you keep reading and using the resources below. If you feel you are struggling with some of the subjects, please feel free to visit the year five or even year four’s blogs to get some ideas from the other year groups or use the content from Oak Academy (https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/subjects/#subjects) or BBC Bitesize (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons)

It is important to leave a comment if there are any issues with the work set or if you are just want to tell us how you are getting on at home.

Internet Safety 

Each week we will add some support in keeping safe on the internet.

Activity 1: Watch Play Like Share, Episode 1

  • Find Play Like Share at www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/watch
  • Watch Episode 1: Block Him Right Good, Alfie with your child.
  • Use the following questions to chat about the cartoon:
    • What did you think? What did you like about Play Like Share?
    • What different things do Sam, Ellie and Alfie do online? [E.g. make videos, talk to people, learn to sing, share their songs]
    • What problem did Alfie face at the beginning of the cartoon? [Another gamer messaged Alfie, asking to game with him. Alfie said no as he
      had to go to school]
    • How did the gamer make Alfie feel? [Happy at first and then uncomfortable and worried when he started making threats]
    • What did Alfie do when he realised something wasn’t right? [Didn’t reply. Told a trusted adult, his mum. Blocked the gamer. Reported to
      the website.]
    • What happened when Selfie’s video was made public? How did it make them feel? [People they didn’t know wrote nasty or strange
      comments. Received links to adverts. They felt worried and uncomfortable.]

Activity 2: Design a poster for Selfie

  • Ask your child to create a poster for Sam, Ellie and Alfie’s new band Selfie
  • Encourage them to come up with a design that shows off each
    character’s talents and personality.
  • 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 personal information, or any pictures of your child.
