This action song teaches children about the weather while developing their physical skills and musical awareness. As they take on the role, firstly of the sunshine knocking on the door of the sleepy children and then of storm chasing people back home to safety, they also learn to recognise when the music changes and indicates another change in the weather!

'Staying Cyber Safe' - an Activity Pack for 5 - 7 year olds

(0)
‘Staying Cyber Safe’ is a drama and play Activity Pack to help children in Key Stage 1 (ages 5 - 7) learn how to stay safe online. Complete with four easy to deliver drama games plus four extension activities and original music, learning how to stay safe online has never been so much fun! THE ‘CYBER SAFE’ SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO At the heart of your Activity Pack is the ‘Cyber Safe’ song, written to be sung time and again and to help children remember the four simple rules they should follow in order to stay safe online (the ‘Cyber Safe’ rules). In addition to the music track is our original music video which is an integral part of this resource. RULE 1: When online, don’t share your name with anyone - using a nickname’s much more fun! RULE 2: Remember that when online, sometimes people lie. This is why you should never share details like your number or where you live. RULE 3: When online don’t be cruel - be nice to people, like you are at school. RULE 4: When online, if something makes you feel, ‘No way!’ tell a trusted adult straight away. FOUR DRAMA GAMES Your pack contains four easy to deliver drama games, each designed to teach one of the four ‘Cyber Safe’ rules (above). You won’t need any complicated equipment to play our drama games, nor a huge space. All games can be played in your classroom although you may, at times, wish to move a few tables or chairs out of the way, or play outside. Each game is physical, fun, and not only helps children learn how to stay safe online, but also targets the development of important skills: Communication Concentration Confidence Cooperation FOUR EXTENSION TASKS Your pack also contains four printable activities; extension tasks that aim to cement each of the four ‘Cyber Safe’ rules. DIFFERENTIATION Whatever their ability, all children will be able to join in and participate in all our games and therefore differentiation is by outcome. Where appropriate, other activities have been differentiated by task.
