Y2/1 have created their own invitations this morning based on our class text, Halibut Jackson. We have also been learning about sharing information and pictures on the internet. We have decided to share some of our invitations and we invite you to comment on our creations, remembering the very important rules that we have revisited today, as part of Safer Internet Day.
Here in Year 5, we are creating and sharing our own esafety quizzes using Kahoot!
Here is a good question from Francesca:
I am 7 years old. Am I old enough to have an instagram account?
A. Yes, you’re old enough.
B. Ask an adult.
C. No, you’re too young.
D. Ask a classmate.
What is your answer(s)?
All of the staff would like to wish the pupils, parents and carers a Happy Safer Internet Day!
There are lots of exciting activities lined up for the children today, all helping to deliver the theme of this year’s Safer Internet Day – “Create, connect and share respect”.
Don’t forget that our school website has lots of fantastic information on how you can help to keep children safe online when at home, including our excellent guide on setting up parental controls. For those who may have missed it when we first posted it before Christmas, here is a link to this essential guide!
We hope that all of the children will come home full of enthusiasm on how to stay safe online. Keep an eye on the blog today, as I know that all of the teachers will be keen to share some of the amazing work that the children will create today!
Today in Year 5 we have been learning about being responsible, thoughtful and respectful when playing online games.
Here is Kasey’s advise to a boy who had a problem with a friend who was being unkind whilst they played each other on Fifa.
Always remember your SMART rules and Tell!
Tell an adult who you trust or report your issue on our school website (home page) using the ‘Report an Issue’ button.
Finally, make sure you treat people online as you would if you were face to face with them and always treat people as you would like to be treated yourself!
Year 4 created some fantastic Tellagami videos to share the message about being a responsible digital citizen. We thought about how to be a good citizen in our local community before thinking about online communities. The children had fantastic ideas about how to make the internet a better place, and how to keep themselves and others safe online. Below is an example of one of the many excellent videos created by the children.
Do you have any ideas on how to be a good citizen? Share them with us below!
Children have been given the latest issue of Digital Parenting magazine to take home with them tonight. Inside, parents and carers will find some great articles about how to keep their children safe when using the Internet at home. There is also a very handy section from page 40 onwards about age ratings for films and computer games, as well as guidance on how to set up parental controls for your internet connection and any social media accounts or streaming services.
It is a wonderful magazine with lots of great information. Don’t forget that we will continue to update you on the latest e-safety news and information on our social media feeds and via the school blog and website.
Mr Hunt thoroughly enjoyed getting to know his new class today.
As part of our first day back, we reminded ourselves about how to stay safe online. The children thought about our SMART rules. We discussed what the letters in SMART mean, and how we can put them into practise to keep ourselves and others safe. We then wrote letters to give advice to others.
The children showed a thorough knowledge and understanding, and were really enthusiastic and hard working throughout. A fantastic start to Year 4. Great work everyone!
Can you remember what the letters in SMART stand for? What advice would you give to others to help them stay safe online? Let us know in the comments!
We thought about all of the different things that we can create, from stories and artwork, to models and YouTube videos. Then we discussed how we would feel if somebody else stole that work and said that they had created it themselves.
The children thought about what we should do to avoid upsetting anybody or getting into any trouble – So remember, always give credit to things that you find online! The children produced some fantastic posters using iPads too – Well done Year 4!
As part of our work for Safer Internet Day last week, the children in Year 4 reflected on the theme of the day – “Be the change”.
The children discussed how we can make changes to the internet to make it a better place for everybody. The children then used the Morfo app to create videos with some of their ideas. The video below contains some of their ideas and suggestions on how we can stay safe, and make the internet better in the future.
We hope that you enjoy it! Do you have your own ideas on how we can make the internet better for everyone? Let us know in the comments and we can all unite to provide a better internet!
