Safer Internet Day

Date: 9th Feb 2018 @ 8:16am

Tuesday 6th February marked Safer Internet Day 2018.  The aim of the day was to spread the message of safe internet use and to educate the children as to what they can do to keep the internet safe for themselves and others.

The children considered cyber bullying, what it means and how we can keep ourselves safe from cyber bullying.  They then created posters with messages encouraging people to think about their actions before posting something online.  Also, messages of support to those who are a victim of cyber bullying.

Next, we considered not only actions that can make us feel sad online, but actions that can make us feel good.  Many children said that they like it when people send nice messages of support, post nice comments on pictures or videos and send pictures or videos of animals to cheer them up.

We also thought about how we can keep our personal profiles safe from people we don't know and when the children compared their online lives to their real lives, they realised how important it was to keep information about yourself private.

We ended the day making pledges about what they will do to help keep the internet safe for themselves and others.

Overall, the children thoroughle enjoyed the day and learned a great deal from the experience.
