Great new game teaching children how to stay safe online!

New Thinkuknow game and website for 8-10 year olds

Thinkuknow are delighted to announce that Band Runner – the fun new runner-style game for 8-10 year olds – is now live on the Thinkuknow website.
 
The game features some familiar faces: Sam, Alfie and Ellie from the Play Like Share animations are continuing their adventures and helping children to  build their knowledge, confidence and skills to stay safe from sexual abuse and other risks they might encounter online.
 
A key area of the new site is the ‘Stay Safe’ zone where Sam, Ellie and Alfie share child-friendly advice based upon their adventures in the films. The zone is divided into six  topic areas: Play, Like, Share, Chat , Lock, and Explore.
 
Children can visit the ‘Worried About Something?’ page which provides advice and support on how to get help if something worrying has happened online.
 
You can download the guidance for professionals, which includes a lesson plan on using Band Runner with children and young people here. The game and website can also be accessed by parents and carers with their children at home, and you can find information to share with parents and carers here.
