Featuring characters and messages from the CEOP Education Jessie & Friends resource, the new 4-7s website helps children to develop the skills and knowlede they need to help them stay safer when spending time online.
Designed for children to visit at home with their parents and carers, users complete 'badges' where they help the characters, Jessie, Tia and Mo, to identify when to 'Tell a Grown Up' (TAG) in different online situations.
How does it work?
Each badge asks a series of questions, aimed at helping children to recognise worrying or frightening situations online. Answering each question correctly earns a star. When children have answered all the questions in a badge and earned three stars, they will get a certificate to download or print and colour in.
The four badges cover the following topics:
• watching videos
• sharing pictures (6-7 year olds only)
• online gaming (6-7 year olds only)
• chatting online (6-7 year olds only)
The website is divided into sections for 4-5 and 6-7 year olds and features relevant and age appropriate badges and videos for the chosen age bracket.
4-5 year olds will be able to access and play the Watching Videos badge, while 6-7 year olds will be able to play the Sharing Pictures, Online Gaming, and Chatting Online badges, in addition to Watching Videos.
The related Jessie & Friends episodes can be found in the 'Videos' tab on the 4-7s website which you can watch with your child after completing the badges.
The website also has a 'Worried about something?' area containing advice for 4-7 year olds on what they can do if they are worried about something that has happened online.
