 Online Safety Week 7th - 11th February 2022

Reception Class


We have been reading the book “Chicken Clicking” and discussing things we should do and shouldn’t do to keep us safe online.

We have also been busy making our own devices and role playing how we should use a computer and tablets safely.


We really enjoyed designing our own games to play on a tablet. We discussed how to play them and how we can stay safe while playing the games. 


Year 1


We have had a wonderful week focusing on Online Safety. We shared our ideas about how we can be safe online and thought of some instructions we can follow. We wrote our instructions down and also performed them using actions. We created internet safety posters to go with them too.  


We also shared the story of 'Digiduck and the Magic Castle' where we discussed keeping our information safe and always telling an adult if we aren't sure of something online. We did a class quiz on Purple Mash and answered questions about the story and about online safety. The children were so keen to answer the questions and we were very impressed with the children's knowledge. The children can read the story again at home and complete the quiz. To do this please log in to Purple Mash (see child's reading records for log in details) and click on '2Dos'. Here you will see the quiz and some instructions. Enjoy!  


Year 2


This week year two have been looking at how we can use the internet safely and what information we can and should not be sharing online. We created some super online safety posters on purple mash as well as learning our very own online safety song which we turned into a video to share with school during our assembly.  Super work year 2!


Year 3


For Safer Internet Day, Year 3 have been very busy learning a new song all about being safe on social media. They have been practicing lots in school and many students have been learning their lyrics at home. Freya has even brought her ukulele in to provide us with a tune to sing along to! During ICT, students created an online safety poster and wrote ingredients for a ‘Kinder Internet’ spell. We are all excited for our performance of the song in Friday’s assembly. Let’s hope there isn’t any stage fright!


Year 4


This week in Year 4 the children have been very creative in making Online Safety posters to share in class and discuss about how to be safe online. On Purple Mash as homework, they've enthusiastically completed their 'Who to talk to leaflet?' where they included lots of SMART rules on how to get help if they or someone needed it.  We have also completed Online Safety word searches, discussed and reflected on online gaming scenarios that could occur and what we would do to get the correct help.  As a class we have also been practicing a short Rap: 'Take care when you share, if in doubt, SPEAK OUT!', our final activity - an Online Safety Quiz.


Year 5


Year 5 have enjoyed looking into aspects of internet safety this week. They have examined issues around online gaming. They wrote advice sheets for someone about how we should respect others online. They also explored how to report behaviour that they were unhappy with. It was a very interesting discussion and I'm pleased to say everyone was really engaged and knowledgeable about this topic. 


Year 6


Year 6 have been talking about online safety this week and how important it is for us all as we regularly use devices and the internet. We have contributed to discussions about staying safe and ways we can enable this to happen and what we should do if we see or hear something we don't like. We know that we can never be sure that people who are not familiar to us are who they say they are when going online.


We have also been thinking about our choice of passwords and why we have to be careful to choose ones that protect us by being hard to guess. This idea was shared with the rest of the school through a presentation in our assembly today.
