Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day 2018 was on the 6th February, so today in our computing slot we discussed what it meant to be safe and kind online.

The children had lots to say about who they played games with or chatted to online. I was pleased to hear that so many of our children take steps to ensure they are always safe. For example, some children said that they were too young for certain social media sites so they didn’t have an account on them, and others said they knew the importance of keeping their bodies healthy so don’t spend too much time staring at a screen!

As homework, I asked all of 5L to do ONE good deed online this weekend. That could include liking someone’s photos, sending a compliment or a nice comment,¬†working together with your friend to win a game,¬†etc.

Can you comment to tell me your good deeds 5L?

    I love how much the school does in relation to internet safety.

    This is something that we are talking to Maddi about all the time, we are trying to get the message to land that if you have never actually seen the someone in person then they are a stranger. We also discussed the dangers of strangers online, which as grooming.

    It is taking us a while to get this message to land but we feel Maddi is starting to understand that the Online world should be treated the same as real life.

    It is really important that you are safe online, some websites can be very dangerous especially when you are on social media apps like facebook, twitter and Instergram, anybody who you only know online can be fake and if you can be fake and act older than you really are then they can too. Everyone can be safe online if you really try.

      Well explained Maddi, its great that you understand that strangers are the same online or in person. Its very easy to believe someone when they are telling who they are online, but I am proud that you understand how to be safe and also the dangers of engaging with strangers.

      Maybe you should share our Online contract with your class.
