We have recently taken part in an online assembly delivered by Google’s ‘Be Internet Legends Team’. The children really enjoyed it and couldn’t wait to start completing some of the lessons and games. We thought we would invite you to join in with the ‘Be Internet Legends Family Adventure’. The adventure will be launching on Thursday 12th November, so we have provided some information to explain all about it!
Your child might have spent a bit more time on the internet lately. That’s why Google and Parent Zone’s Be Internet Legends programme has been busy helping families by giving them tools to be safer and more confident online
– and now we’re inviting all of you on a new adventure!
The Legends Family Adventure is a short three-part animated series that follows a family of Internauts on an adventure through Interland. You’ll meet Lumen, a shy Internaut in Interburb.
When Lumen’s bear goes missing one day, the whole family must venture into Interland to get it back. Along the way, they learn ways to help spot scams, deal with cyberbullies and keep information secure in the digital world, with a big dose of bravery too.
As legends-in-the-making, we’re inviting you and your child to watch The Legends Family Adventure together as a family:

We’ll also tell you about The Legends Family Challenge, where you can test your online safety knowledge, prove how legendary you are and maybe even win prizes for your child’s school – including a LIVE online assembly with a school in the USA!

Meet Ollee: a virtual friend for children and parents
Google and Parentzone have also teamed up to develop an app for children and parents.
Have you tried our new app Ollee yet?
We’ve worked closely with children and parents to create an early-intervention tool that will help 8-11 year olds with their emotional wellbeing and encourage communication within families.
It’s designed to help children reflect on how they feel and to process their experiences with the support and help of their parents and carers – and it does this by offering them advice about a range of subjects: school, family, friends, their body, the internet and the world.
For each of these subjects, children can choose an emotion that matches how they feel about it: happy, angry, sad, confused, frustrated, stressed or worried.
It’s packed with advice about subjects including school, friendships, family life and the internet – and it’s available now, for free. We hope you like it.
Parents can also follow the same pathways to get advice on the subjects and emotions they think their child might be struggling with. This advice is presented in the same bite-sized format but is tailored to the parent audience.
