Safer Internet Day
On Tuesday 7th February, all classes at Mickleton Primary School took part in E-Safety awareness lessons as part of Safer Internet Day, a global campaign led by three leading organisations to try and promote the safe and responsible use of technology by young people. The theme for 2017 was ‘Be the Change: Unite for a better internet’.
As the internet becomes more accessible and the use of technological devices by children increases, the need to teach our children how to stay safe online becomes more necessary and poignant.
Through the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One, children were helped by Smartie the Penguin who taught them to think before they click. In Key Stage Two, children in Class 4 made their own E-Safety Awareness videos about the dangers of sharing information online; Class 5 created posters based on our SMART rules for using computers and the internet; Class 6 discussed the legalities of social networking sites and how to use them safely.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the activities they participated in and hopefully they will now feel more confident in safely navigating the internet.
