Safer Internet Day 2017
All week, the children have been learning about how they can 'unite for a better internet' and stay safe online.
Across the school, children have been learning about images they see online. They have discussed how images can be edited for different purposes and what the risks of this are. The children also looked at different photographs online and discussed what personal information they can find out about the individuals in the photograph and/or the person who has taken the photograph. Finally, the children shared their thoughts on the advantages and disadvantages of sharing images on the internet, and what important information they should consider when posting anything online or on different apps.
Children in Year 6 were also visited once again by Youth Engagement Constable, Philip Seddon, along some of his other colleagues from Merseyside Police. They discussed different apps and how to deal with negative situations that can occur online. Merseyside Police will be coming back into school in a few weeks to have similar discussions with Year 5.
Aside from the work happening in classrooms, the Digital Leaders have met several times over the past few weeks to prepare for Internet Safety Day. Mr King and Mr West discussed e-safety with the children and offered them some training on how to help members of their class if they are having an issue online. The Digital Leaders then distributed posters all around the school to raise awareness and delivered assemblies on Safer Internet Day to particular year groups.
