Safer Internet Superstars!

Today was Safer internet Day, so we kicked off proceedings by joining together for an Internet Safety Assembly organised by Google ‘Be Internet Legends”. A big thank you to Mrs McHarg for signing our classes up to the online assembly as we listened and learned about protecting privacy, being informed and not falling for false scams and the importance of keeping passwords private! Now they know the do’s and don’ts – here’s hoping all pupils remember how to stay safe online!
Afterwards, our newly learned knowledge was put to the test with an online quiz which explained different scenarios and what we should do, we learned that parents, carers and teachers will always help if ever in a cyber crisis!!
We played a “guess the app” game which had been organised by our Digital Leaders, Daisy and Ewan-  and we had good fun with this round. Some of the app icons really got us thinking!
Back in class, P5-7s checked out the BBC Own It website by exploring the ‘Put your phone down and meditate’ section for a digital detox and Stop-Think-Send which encouraged everyone to think before they posted online – and what to do if they have said something they regretted or received something which upset them.  This is something which we have been talking about a lot in class recently and so hopefully pupils really found this session useful!
We reinforced this by sending a kindness email to a class buddy – just a nice way to communicate with someone! Everyone cc’d Mrs F into their emails so she could get a warm and happy glow from all the lovely things everyone was saying to one another!
Used safely – the internet is a wonderful place 🙂
