Safer Internet Day
This week, the children have been celebrating Safer Internet Day and it was celebrated with the theme ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’. The children have taken part in a range of lessons and activities based around being safe on the internet. Year 5 and 6 had a visit from the Police around Safer Internet Day. Have a look below at your child's learning.
In Year 1 we had a discussion about keeping safe on the internet. The children were very sensible and came up with lots of ideas of how to stay safe. We then wrote speech bubbles with how we can stay safe online.
We have read the story ‘DigiDuck and the Magic Castle’. We stopped the story at different points to share our feeling emojis. We then looked at many scenarios and discussed what we could do instead in that situation. After this we sent DigiDuck kind messages to make him feel better after he receive an unkind message.
In Year 3, we had a discussion about different scenarios when using the internet for playing games. We talked in partners about what we would do and then completed different scenarios on our own.
On Tuesday, Year 4 children took part in E-Safety day and were discussing what information would be suitable for a private account and what could be shared publicly. We had discussions about whether photos of pets, our houses and our school uniform should be shared. We also looked at a password checked and tried to make the most secure password possible. Some children created super passwords that would take billions of years to be hacked into.
We had a visit from the local Police and listened to the importance of being safe on the internet. We then wrote letters to John about our internet safety after our visit.
Below is some support for parents to promote a safer internet at home.
