Pupils needing extra support: Get the children to practice the rhyme from ‘Childnet – Smartie the penguin’, adding hand actions they have invented themselves will help reinforce the key points. Ask them to draw the main points of the rhyme on their booklet with minimal sentences.
Pupils working at greater depth: Children should list some of the things that they use the internet for and write a short set of rules for when they are accessing them outside of school.
