What are they?
Based on the eight key topics outlined in the UKCCIS ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework, our new EYFS interactive video lessons talk to the children about online dangers in a fun and engaging way, providing a truly immersive experience. Each video lesson has accompanying activities to support learning on the topic of online safety, helping to provide young children in an early years setting with the knowledge to protect themselves from the risks they pose when using technology.
The Problem: “How do we talk about online safety to children in an Early Years Foundation Stage setting? How do we capture the attention and imagination of children under the age of 5?” The UKCCIS ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework is an important document which describes the key skills and understanding that children should try and develop at different stages of their school life. However, as we liaised with schools around the country, it quickly became apparent that teaching staff were facing an uphill struggle in trying to convey messages around online safety to younger children in a way that children felt engaged and could relate to the lesson content. This was particularly acute in an early years setting.
The Solution: Schools spoke. So, we listened… We soon realised that flat lesson content not the answer. We needed to be better. We needed to innovate. We needed something that children could relate to… We needed someone children could relate to. So, we went out and we went big. We brought in one of the most recognised TV stars in the children’s world and delivered her straight into the child’s classroom. The global face of ‘Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience’ and ‘Peppa Pig Live’, Emma Grace Arends helped us to create beautifully clear, fun, engaging and imaginative video lesson plans that deliver serious messages around online safety almost effortlessly to young children. For all the amazing skills that teachers possess, they are not entertainers. And children love to be entertained. Teachers needed help so we gave it to them.
Based on the UKCCIS “Education for a Connected World” Framework, our lesson plans and resources cover all of the learning objectives listed below:
