Together for a better internet​

Safer Internet Day 2022.jpg

The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees thousands of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

 

Each year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores a new issue or theme which is impacting the lives on young people in the UK. The 2022 theme is All Fun and Games? Exploring respect and relationships online. This celebrates young people's role in creating a safer internet and the ways they are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are part of. The platforms young people use are spaces for connection, community and collaboration, which is why the Day challenges them to foster supportive relationships and respectful communities, whilst equipping them with the skills they need to keep themselves and others safe in these spaces.

In school, each year group did different activities around the Safer Internet Day theme:

Reception - The children listened to a story and heard some rules about using the internet. They also sang a song to help them remember.

Year 1 - Year 1 discussed age appropriate websites for them and then looked at different scenarios using fairytale characters and different issues they may come across using the internet. The children discussed who they should tell and why it was a concern.

Year 2 -  The children in Year 2 read the book Chicken Clicking and thought about how we can keep our passwords safe, and came up with some key e-safety rules.

Year 3 - Year 3 looked at why we have Safer Internet Day and discussed what they would do in different scenarios to show respect and politeness online. They also created Slides presentations to show different ways to stay safe and be respectful and positive online.

Year 4 -The children watched a video about creating strong passwords and keeping their personal information safe. They also discussed the age ratings of games and social media sites. As a class, they mindmapped how to stay safe online and discussed what respectful behaviour was online.

Year 5 - Year 5 particpated in a quiz about Internet Safety and discussed what they would do in different scenarios. They learnt about live-streaming and gaming and how to stay safe and be respectful towards each other. Finally, they created posters to inform others of what they have learnt.
