Watching these videos can support your child during periods of home learning.
While you are watching, your children may wish to make some notes. They could try to record the key vocabulary (and discuss what it means), or pause the video to draw some pictures or write a few sentences about what they have found out.
Does your children have any additional questions after they have watched? Would they like to watch a part of it again to review their learning? Could they find out more about the topic from a different source (e.g. a book or website)?
How could they record what they have discovered? They might want to draw some labelled diagrams or write a sentence / paragraph / page about the topic. If you have access to a mobile device, could they create an audio or a video report?
In the current climate, with children spending increasing amounts of time online during home schooling, Northumbria Police would like to highlight a programme on online safety which they believe you will find useful for protecting your children if included as part of their home learning package.
There are resources on the website targeted at different age groups. Parents/Carers could use the resource to assist as part of their learning and hopefully help keep them safe. Please click the link to learn more. Protecting Your Child Online
