Safer Internet Day 2017
10th Feb 2017
We have had a fantastic week supporting the UK Safer Internet Centre's national event, Safer Internet Day.
With the launch of the activities coming through a whole day of lessons on Tuesday 7th February, work was produced over the course of the week to further enhance the children's understanding of internet safety.
Year 6 had some excellent discussions about the bigger impact of the information an individual shares online, here are just a few of their comments:
"Learning about digital footprints was really interesting because I didn't know they existed and learning about it showed me why I need to be safe online." Dilys
"Learning about how to be safe on the internet on Safer Internet Day really helped me as it taught me things I didn't know. For example I learnt that a digital footprint is like a trace of you on the internet including images you put on and comments you post." Leela
"I learnt that your online reputation can have an effect on decisions you make later in life." Daniel
In Year 2 the children wrote acrostic poems to remind them how to stay safe online:
Stay safe online
To be safe, stay away from strangers online
And tell an adult if it goes wrong
You have to be sure that you are playing on a suitable game
Strangers could be nasty or nice
Always go on suitable websites
Films might not be suitable
Every time you go online be careful. By Charles and Fionna
Year 4 looked at how reliable images are and how pictures can be interpreted in different ways. We created our own images to show how seeing is not always believing.
"A picture might look like one thing but actually means something else."
"There's always more than one story" Harvey
"Not everything you see is true." Molly, Elizabeth and Ellie
"Don't always judge a picture by what it looks like or how it seems."- Sophie, Megan and Cindy
Our School Council have been designing a leaflet about internet safety for the children in our school.
