Safety Week

Read all about what happened in Y5&6 with Mrs Lohoar on Safer Internet Day 2017

Y5 Amethyst

This week was Safety Week at Prince Edward Primary School, and each year group participated in different activities tied to various aspects of safety. The Year 5s and 6s had four different workshops over two days, including one on e-safety with Mrs Lohoar, and on Tuesday, which was Safer Internet Day around the world,  there was a whole-school assembly about how to stay safe online.

In Mrs Lohoar’s e-safety workshops, we learned all about our responsibilities as digital citizens and how it is up to each of us to look after our own digital footprints. Did you know that your digital footprint lasts forever? We also came up with own own lists of rules on how to use the Internet wisely.

We took home some information for all of our grown-ups so that they know how they can help us.

Read all about what happened in Y3&4 with Mr Little on Safer Internet Day 2017

This week as part of our Safety Week Mr Little and Mr Sieczkarek conducted an experiment with all classes in Year 3 and Year 4 to see just how safe we really were while using the internet.

For the experiment we were told that we would be playing an online game on the iPad. The game we played was Yahtzee. We had to roll five dice to try and get the highest score possible. After a while we noticed that this game had a chat feature and that we had received a message from someone called Max2009Smith. We chatted to Max and he seemed really nice, he told us his name, age, school and that he was off school because he was poorly. He asked for our personal information and we told him our full name, age, street name and school. Unfortunately, we weren’t really playing against Max Smith, we…

We have continued to learn about how to be safe today as it is Safer Internet Day.

In Pearl class, we read stories like Chicken Clicking and Penguin Pig to help reinforce the messages of how to stay safe online.

From this, we used the laptops to think about the key messages that we learnt about from the stories. Here are some of our work.

Onyx Class FS2

We had a very busy Safety Week this year. As you know already we had a visit from Don and his ambulance on Monday. He helped us think about how to keep ourselves safe and how the ambulance and paramedics can help if we do have an accident. You can read more in the post here. We also wrote our own blog post about the visit which you can see here.

On Wednesday when we went to the Hall things looked a bit different. It didn’t look safe at all. What do you think would have happened if we’d have done PE without checking? It helped us think that we must always decide if something looks safe before we use it.

We did a lot of thinking all week about online safety and keeping safe when we use the computers. Tuesday was Safer Internet Day in school. We read…

Safer Internet Day

Read all about what happened in Nursery on Safer Internet Day 2017

diamondclassfs1

Today was Safer Internet Day, even though the children in nursery are only 3 and 4 we still had lots to think about for how to keep safe when playing on computers, phones and tablets.

We thought about what to do if we saw things we did not like. Lots of the children spoke about seeing things that were weird or scary that they couldn’t quite describe, especially when they went on youtube.

122

We talked about if they would tell a grown-up and nearly everybody said they would at nursery but they wouldn’t at home because they worried their grown-up would take their tablet away. Lots of children spoke about clicking the ‘X’ lots of times to try and get rid of things.

121

We talked about when we went online and who decides what we can go on.

Parental Controls on Virgin Media

One of the most common conversations Miss Parker had with parents and carers on Safer Internet Day 2016 was about if they had Parental Controls on their wifi/ internet at home.

If you have Virgin as your internet provider then you can find out more about how to put Parental Controls on here.

The Safer Internet Centre advises you

Remember that filtering is only part of the solution

No filter or parental controls tool is 100% effective, and many of the risks that young people face online are because of their own and other’s behaviour. It is therefore important to talk to your children about staying safe online with your child and make sure they know that they can turn to you if they get into any difficulty. For more information about key topics such as cyberbullying, sexting and social networking, see more advice for parents.
