4B were very lucky to have Mr Hughes in with our class to look at online safety and discuss body image. To begin we looked at a range of online social media apps and what’s good vs what’s bad about using them.

The main part of our session was looking at how photos are changed by many people before they post them online. Having looked at some examples and discussed what people had changed and why, we then had a go at changing photos ourselves on the iPads. This hands on experience showed us how easily photos can be manipulated to not portray reality and how we should be happy with the way we naturally look rather than feeling pressured to look like photos that aren’t real.
