Today is Safer Internet day day which is a national campaign to help children stay safe whilst using the internet. https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/
In school and as part of home learning, children at Westfield Infant school have been talking about the internet and discussing how to stay safe.
Children in EYFS have been on an adventure with 'Smartie the Penguin' and have learnt a special rhyme to remind them what to do when using the internet- 'Before you tap and click, STOP and Think and TELL someone'
In Year 1 and Year 2 they have been following the story of Hector in 'Hectors World', learning all about personal information - what it is and when to share it. Year 2 also looked at the story of 'Detective Digiduck' and how the internet can be full of false information. They even made up their own incorrect facts to share with their friends who guessed if they were real or not!
