Today we thought about how to stay safe online through the national 'Safer Internet Day' campaign. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.
This years theme is
'All fun and games - exploring relationships online'
We heard a story about Digiduck and the Magic Castle which focused on playing games online. The story helped us discuss themes within the book which included peer pressure, password sharing, and in-app purchasing.

We also talked in classes about how we all use the internet and what rules we already had in place at home!
We were impressed with how much the children knew about being safe online.
Throughout the rest of this week, children in Years 1 and 2 will learn with Hector about being safe online - they will watch ‘Hectors World’ and find out about what personal details are and when and who to share them with. They will also learn with Jessie and friends about what to do if we see something online that upsets us.
In EYFS they will learn with ‘Smartie the Penguin’ about being safe online and they will also meet ‘Jessie and Friends’ and talk about what we are watching online.
