Safer Internet Day

Yesterday was Safer Internet Day and the pupil participation group Internet Empire explored their knowledge of internet safety. All pupils should have knowledge of how to stay safe online for example, what to do if they encounter inappropriate content, how to keep personal details safe, using passwords to protect their information and cyberbullying.

In the session we used a special interactive questionnaire called ‘Mentimeter’ – Pupils were in groups of 3 and shared an iPad to answer the questions below which created this document. This will also be shared with staff to improve our quality learning and teaching

Holiday Home Learning

We asked what activities they would set to practise or show their knowledge of internet safety and this is what they came up with! Miss Bruner and Miss Copeland would be delighted to hear if anyone completes one of the tasks below to share their knowledge of safe internet use.

Games to learn more about online safety 

Interland – Children aged 8 – 12. A new game made by Google – covering cyberbullying, phishing, data protection through mini-games and quizzes. Very cool!

Band Runner – Also by Think U Know, this is designed for children aged 8-10.

Cloud Quest – An interactive adventure website with videos and activities for children under 10 (American website)
