Today our school took part in the world wide ‘Safer Internet Day’. All pupils from Nursery to Y6 learned about aspects of keeping safe on-line. Pupils participated in stories about keeping safe online, learnt who they can trust, how to keep your password safe to name but a few.
EYFS and Key Stage 1
Nursery, Reception, Y1 and Y2 listened to the story of Digiduck and how he used his father’s password to buy things online. Children learned that it is wrong to do so.
Nursery used masks to role-play the story. They learned that they have to ask an adult for permission to use the IPad or phone.
Nursery pupil voice:
“Tell mummy and daddy if you play game on Ipad.”
“Tell mummy and daddy, can I play the Ipad please.”
Reception pupils looked at who helped you to keep safe, learning about what is a trusted adult who they can ask for help.
Y1 sorted information into 2 categories; those you keep to yourself and those that you could share online.
Y1 pupil voice:
‘Do not give out your password because people can get into your log-in’.
‘We don’t say I love you to a stranger online because people can be mean and they may be pretending to be adults’.
Y2 created ‘A Kinder spell’ with a focus on doing something kind online or do something that has made others happy. Creating 5 ingredients to make that spell such as; kindness, care, love, good manners and understanding.
Key Stage 2
Y3 looked at what makes respectful and healthy relationships both offline and online. From the discussions and feed back they then had to create their own Respectful Relationship Recipe. This tied in very well to our rights and respect week from November 2021 where we were learning about sharing kindness and being kind to one and all.
Y4 created their own mascot for their gaming guide. The mascot would help gaming chats more respectful and safe, giving 5 key pieces of advice.
For Y5 it was Quiz time! They had to complete a quiz about safer internet use based around different scenarios in keeping your personal information private, how to interact respectfully online and peer pressure. The answers were then discussed in class.
Y6 looked at how best to respond in different scenarios through the activity ‘In the moment’. They had to explain what they would and what they would not do.
You are in a group chat with lots of friends. Someone forwards a photo of another person in your class that you really don’t think is fully. They are not in the chat and you’re worried it might upset them. What would you do?
