Online safety at home - activities for 8-10 year olds

Primary

A series of worksheets and activities that relate to videos, produced by Thinkuknow, to encourage awareness about various digital safety issues.

This resource is also available in Welsh.

Thinkuknow have produced activities and worksheets, each corresponding to a video focusing on a different issue within online safety. The issues covered within these worksheets and activities include:

  • sharing content online
  • being kind online
  • cyberbullying
  • gaming
  • using technology positively

Each worksheet includes a link to watch a specific episode, which then prompts discussion about a certain issue. These activities are designed to give children a healthy understanding about online dangers and how to safely, and positively, use the internet.

 

Using this resource

This resource is designed for:

  • children aged 8 to 10

Please note that this resource mentions sharing children’s drawings on social media sites – for safeguarding reasons we’d recommend following Thinkuknow’s advice to not share images, or names, of children when doing so.
