Safer Internet Week
February 5th-9th 2018:
In key stage 1, we focused on what is and is not appropriate to share online and we discussed what to do if you see something that you don't like or something that is unusual, on the internet. The children had some fantastic discussions in class and really impressed the teachers with their ideas of what is right and wrong when using the internet.
In Key Stage 2 we explored how our behaviour online, affects people in real life. In our assembly we looked at a number of case studies and discussed how they made us feel. For example, is it okay to share a picture of a friend pulling a silly face without asking them? This got us all thinking more carefully and ready for some classroom activities. We played games, watched films, made posters, debated and acted things out. All with the aim of exploring what happens when we go online and share things with friends and strangers. How does it make them feel? What are the consequences for ourselves? And how can we make a better decision before posting something online so it has the effect we want?
It was an extremely worthwhile week and the children really enjoyed the opportunity to spend time in school talking about an issue that is so relevant to their everyday lives.
