Childnet Film Competition
Leading online safety charity, Childnet, a partner in the UK Safer Internet Centre, has launched the ninth Childnet Film Competition to encourage young people aged 7-18 to create a short film to educate their peers about staying safe online.
Delivered by Childnet as part of its work in the UK Safer Internet Centre, the competition aims to encourage young people to have respectful interactions online and gives young people the opportunity to harness their creativity and share their understanding of online safety issues.
Judged by a panel of experts from the BBC, BAFTA, BBFC and BFI, the winning films will be shown at the finalists’ event in London and will be used as educational resources in schools across the UK.
This year’s theme focusses on how young people can ‘connect with respect’ and work together to make the internet a better place for children and young people.
Further information on how you can get involved can be found attached.
This is an enjoyable activity to incorporate into a phonic session. It will help children to consolidate their learning of words with the same spelling pattern and makes great use of visual memory.
(Introduce the focus sound first with an alphabet arc/word building/sound blending activity).
Then Complete the….. Picture Challenge!
Provide the children with word cards containing words with the target sound e.g. (ur) nurse, purse, church, purple etc.
Then challenge the children to create a poster incorporating all the words on the cards. So they might draw a nurse going to church holding a purple purse.
The children can then either stick the word cards on or write the words on their poster to label their picture. If they write their words they are also practising writing words with the target sound. Get them to say the sounds as they write them too.
(Make sure they write the sound at the top of their poster in large letters so that it is obvious to them which sound the picture mnemonic is illustrating)
