Primary 5~ Safer Internet Day


This week as part of ‘Safer Internet Day’ yesterday, Primary 5 have been thinking about different ways in which we can stay safe online. We have explored the top tips we can use to make a positive change online to help keep us and our friends safe.

These include:

  • Be the change- you can make a difference!
  • Be sensible
  • Be careful
  • Be aware
  • Be safe

We watched some videos about cyber bullying and discussed different scenarios and what we should do if they ever happen. Mrs Stephen was very impressed with how engaged the class were and with their thoughtful contributions during our discussions.

Here is a summary of some of the things we have learnt this afternoon:

“Don’t ever share any personal information”- Jack

“Don’t share any photos of someone else because they might not like it”- James M

“Never open an email or message from someone you don’t know because it might be a nasty virus”- Olivia

“Don’t accept any friend requests from people you don’t know”- Matthew

“Ask a parent/ adult if you’re ever unsure about what to do online”- Daniel

“When someone is cyber bullying you or a friend tell an adult straight away”- Jamie A

“Don’t respond to cyber bullies”- Ruaridh

“You shouldn’t ever meet up with anyone that you only know from being online because they might not be who they say they are”- Isla

“Don’t use an easy password and change it regularly. Also don’t share it with anyone”- Ralph

We have made our own internet safety posters to promote how we can stay safe when we are using the wonderful world wide web!
