Year one have been watching this video in Computing lessons to help teach them about being safe online and why it is so important https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nMUbHuffO8.
Last week they looked at the dangers of revealing personal information whilst online. Today they watched the part of the video where the stranger controlling the teddy bear says some things that are not nice.
We came up with a list of ‘rules’ to help us remember how to behave when we are online (and offline too)! The children suggested things like “Be nice to each other” “Respect one another like you would in the playground” “Say kind things…”
They then wrote these up on flashcards and drew a picture with each rule to help them remember. Nice work Year One!
Here is the presentation from Friday’s e-safety assembly. The main things to remember are…
1. You must be 13 years old to use most social media sites such as Facebook. For some site (e.g. Whatsapp) you need to be even older. If you are using these sites you are actually breaking the law and you could be reported for it. Wait until you are old enough to use these sites. It’s simply not worth the risk and you could be putting yourself in serious danger, especially if you are not using them in a safe and responsible way.
2. Whenever you are online (e.g. gaming, emailing, browsing the internet…) do not reveal personal information about yourself.
3. If something concerns you when you are online tell an adult you trust straight away.
4. Think carefully about how you can keep yourself safe online and make sure your tell your parents what you are doing and what sites you are going on. They need to know what you are doing online, so that they can help to keep you safe.
