Safer Internet Day 2019

8th February 2019

This week the whole school has participated in age appropriate activities about how to stay safe when using the internet.  Parents/carers then joined us for a showcase of the work and for an activity-based learning session with their children.  Thank you to everyone who joined us and to Mr Julian Hughes for sharing his expertise about how to keep our children safe when they are online.

Nursery - listened to the story of Zap & Zoom.  They discussed stranger danger and made a          pictogram of their favourite technology devices.

Reception -  watched the video of Zap & Zoom and learned about the importance of passwords.  They used this discussion as a stimulus for code cracking using padlocks and keys.

Year 1 - took part in a drama based on different technology scenarios.  They then drew a mind image about their understanding of what the internet is and toured the school to spot technology devices. 

Year 2 - completed comprehension questions based on e-safety and spent time learning about the word ‘permission’ and thinking about what it means.  They also made paper chains with messages  related to the theme of ‘Together for a better internet’.

Year 3 -  used the Safer Internet Day resources and took part in a drama activity based on ‘consent’ and what it means to ‘not give consent’. 

Year 4 - used a diamond 9 diagram to prompt discussions about key issues of online safety.  They then looked at statistics about how children use the internet and used them to solve worded problems.  They then created artwork about trusted people we can go to if we have a problem online.

Year 5 - read internet safety scenarios and then wrote about the scenarios from different points of view.  They then drew around each other and used the body shape to write about how people feel on the inside and how the actions of others affect people from the outside.  They then used Power Point to create a pledge.

Year 6 - looked at the world’s use of social media and had group discussions about how we can all work together to improve the internet.  They used their prior learning of green screen and iMovie to support this activity.
