What plant will they grow into?

Now complete the ‘Odd One Out‘ activity.

Look at the three images above and think of as many similarities and differences as you can. Think about:

Then decide which one is the odd one out and why. Give a reason and remember there is no wrong answer!

Activity 1: Playing Games

What games do you enjoy playing online?

How do you play them safely?

Remember that if there is anything that makes you feel sad, worried or upset whilst playing games online, you should tell a grown-up you trust.

Activity 2: Online and Offline Friends

Watch Jessie & Friends Episode 3: Playing games together. https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/jessie-and-friends-videos/

Jessie, Tia and Mo are good friends from school. What behaviours do you think Jessie, Mo and Tia should expect from each other, or how they should treat one another? Examples could include: – They are kind to each other – They make each other laugh – They help each other.

These are behaviours you should always show your friends and what you should always expect from them. This is the same both offline and online.

Print out the ‘Online Behaviour’ worksheet below. Cut out the pictures and the text. Match the picture to the correct description. Alternatively, this activity can be done on the screen by pointing to the picture and its matching description.

These are all ways that Amber tried to ‘trick’ the three friends into telling her their power words (passwords). Remind if something doesn’t ‘feel right’ online, you should speak to a grown up you trust.
