Let's Talk Pants

Your pupils' parents probably already talk to them about things like crossing the road safely. However, many parents struggle when it comes to talking to their children about staying safe from sexual abuse. The NSPCC has produced a free pack for parents to make having the conversation a lot easier. The PANTS rules, Pantosaurs the singing dinosaur and tips about when to talk, the PANTS pack helps parents help children to learn key messages about staying safe with introducing any scary words or ideas.

Parents (and teachers) can download a free PANTS pack

Tek The Modern Cave Boy- Patrick McDonnell

Tek tells the story of a caveboy in love with tech: his tablet, video games, phone, and TV keep him deep in his cave, glued to his devices, day in and day out. He never sees his friends or family anymore – and his ability to communicate has devolved to just one word: “UGH”! Can anyone in the village convince Tek to unplug and come outside into the big, beautiful world?

Tek is a tablet-shaped book that explores the need to balance technology use with ‘real world’ activities.  Tek can help explore the need for children to balance internet use with offline world fun. It can be used to discuss using technology responsibly and the need for children to explore the world both on and offline
