We know that helping your child to learn from home may be difficult, especially with the sudden influx of online resources available to you. This page is intended to provide you with support and resources to help you learn about online safety at home with your child.
Thinkuknow has helpsheets for parents and carers. We have attached the one aimed at primary schools here. This contains key online safety advice and links to their resources, as well as support services.
Once you have read the helpsheets, click on the links below to download your first 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.
