Somerset ActiveBYTES was launched on 16th March. This resources replaces the previous online safety scheme of work provided by Somerset's Education Technology team.
In rewriting the Byte materials we were determined to create active learning opportunities to help children to 'Do not just say'. Have a look at this progressive curriculum. We have been more prescriptive in planning two lessons a term and one assembly. Autumn term focus is 'I am kind and responsible'; spring term 'I am safe and secure'; and summer term 'I am healthy'. There is a continuous provision map for reception classes.
We have updated the A3 posters which were the most popular resources within the previous materials and included a self assessment sheet which could be used as a class assess by exception. There are certificates and stickers.
Based on a design suggested by Amy Norris at Fiveways Special School; we have created rules symbol posters to support learners with speech and language difficulties. You will find these posters in the Foundation Stage block of the page. We are currently working with Fiveways and Selworthy Special Schools to provide planning for learners on p scales.
