As always it was a busy day throughout school continuing the ongoing work we do with our children to help reinforce e-safety and being safe on the internet.
We start the Safer Internet message in Nursery (FS1) with our youngest children. You can read their blog post about Safer Internet Day here. Most surprising with our youngest children was that they wouldn’t tell a grown up at home if they had a problem with their computer or tablet because they thought it would get taken off them! Miss Hulme talked to them about how this wasn’t a good idea and how they should make sure to tell a grown up. Please reinforce this message with your children, however old they are.
The children in Reception (FS2) talked about being safe online all week. You can see what they learnt in a couple of posts. The first is about Safety Week and the second is more about writing their own blog post. You can see that we even had a visit from the Year 3 and Year 4 children who went to show them some special videos they’d been making to help keep us safe.
In Key Stage One the children learnt about staying safe on the computers using stories to help them understand the key messages. You can see what happened in Year 2 Pearl class by clicking here. You can see what happened in Year 2 Ruby class by clicking here and scrolling down the post to find the Safer Internet Day information.
In Lower Key Stage Two the children moved around the different teachers over a number of days. With Mr Little the Year 3 and Year 4 children learnt an important lesson about putting your personal information on computers. You can find out more on Mr Little’s blog here. Mr Sieczkarek also reposted it on his Headteacher blog here as he felt it was so important. It also appears on Amber class’s blog here. It turns out that although our children know the rules and what they should and shouldn’t be doing actually putting that into practice is more difficult. With Miss Croxall the children made videos to come and show the Foundation Stage children highlighting the main messages of online Safety.
In Upper Key Stage Two the children completed different activities too. Year 5 Emerald class tell you all about the assembly that Miss Varley held on Safer Internet Day. You can see it by clicking here . You can read on the Y5 Amethyst blog about the workshops that Year 5 and Year 6 completed during the week by clicking here and on the Year 6 blog here.
We had a fantastic Safety Week and Safer Internet Day 2017. We’ll keep remembering the messages and our teachers will keep reinforcing the messages we’ve learnt all year.
