Safety Week 2017

We had a very busy Safety Week this year. As you know already we had a visit from Don and his ambulance on Monday. He helped us think about how to keep ourselves safe and how the ambulance and paramedics can help if we do have an accident. You can read more in the post here. We also wrote our own blog post about the visit which you can see here.

On Wednesday when we went to the Hall things looked a bit different. It didn’t look safe at all. What do you think would have happened if we’d have done PE without checking? It helped us think that we must always decide if something looks safe before we use it.

We did a lot of thinking all week about online safety and keeping safe when we use the computers. Tuesday was Safer Internet Day in school. We read the book Penguin Pig by Stuart Spendlow which helped us think about if we should believe everything we see on the computer. You can access the Penguin Pig website here and even find out how to get your own copy for home.

We also read Webster’s Bedtime by Hannah Waley. Webster finds it really hard to turn all his devices off at bedtime which stops him getting to sleep.

We’ve been seeing Hector on our computer all year but we watched a video with him in and talked about how he can help keep us safe too. You can watch the Hector’s World videos here.

We started to look at the different blogs of our friends in the different classes in school. The other classes also started sending us messages on this blog and telling us what they thought. When we’re writing comments on others blogs and also writing our own posts we have to remember the Blog Rules to make sure everyone stays safe and happy. You can see our Blog Rules here. If you want to look at the different blogs of the classes in school you can find them on our home page.

On Friday we had some special visitors from Y3 and Y4 come and see us. They had been making videos to help FS2 learn about staying safe online with Miss Croxall. It was great to have them come and visit and also to learn more about staying safe from them.

Parents/ carers- if you want to know more about what your child said and what their friends said about being safe online look in our Floor Book in class. The children made some interesting comments.

What have we been learning? 

  • how to stay safe online. 
  • that you can’t believe everything you see on a computer. 
  • to be as kind on computers as we are in real life. 

How can you help at home?

Safer Internet Day 2016

We are always talking about being safe on the computers and iPads in school but we also talk about staying safe on other devices as well. For Safer Internet Day we had a focus all day on talking about staying safe when we were online.

First we talked about the things that we did online and how we use the internet.

We read the story of Penguin Pig and made up some creatures of our own.

We found some funny animals on the internet by putting duck horse into Google and looked at the images. How many of these do you think are real? They’re all there on the internet though! We talked about how you have to use your brain and think about if what you’re seeing is true.

We made up some great animals of our own thinking of what we would like to see at the zoo if we could see anything we wanted.

We talked about the story and here’s some of what we said…..

Is it a good idea to go and meet a stranger alone? 

Aiva- “If you went to the zoo, you’d take your mummy, dad, nan or grandad.”

Ruby- “Some people might take you away.”

Aissata- “It could be someone who’s invisible.” 

Lacey- “Its making the wrong decision (to go and meet them)”

What could it be behind the door (in the story)?

Corey- “Could be a robber.”

Samuel- “Robbers are bad guys.”

Narla- “They pinching children.”

Samuel- “It might frighten you.”

Harvey M- “Might be the Keeper. It might be a cardboard cut out and they’re hiding behind it.”

Is everything real on the internet? 

Lucas- “No, some bad people tell lies and want to take you away.”

Elisha- “Penguin Pig is pretend, its not real, its not in the zoo.”

Why do you have to be 18 to play some games?

Corey- “Theres too much bad language.”

Alfie- “You could turn down the sound.”

Lucas- “You could see nasty books.”

Harvey M- “I could just play on motorbike games where you just do stunts. You just get back on, you don’t die.”

Dalton- “Violence means when you’re older and play on GTA.”

How do we stay safe on the internet at home? 

Reo- “If we see something we don’t like we tell can tell our mum.”

Corey- “We can press the x and then tell our mum.”

Heres what we recorded in our Floor Book…

We also watched a Hector’s World Video and thought about what we tell people on computers about ourselves. We know not to give out our personal information online.

You can watch the video from CEOP again by clicking here.

What have we been learning

  • To stay safe when we’re using our computers and tablets online. 
  • Not to believe everything we see on the internet. 
  • About all the different things you can do on the internet. 
  • Not to give out our personal information to people online. 

How can you continue the learning at home

  • Watch the video again at home and talk together about what it says. 
  • Talk to children about what they do online and what to do if they see things which worry them or they don’t like. 
  • Look for the Penguin Pig story- you can look for a copy at the library or buy a copy (paperback or online) Click here for more information

Safer Internet Day 2015

During Safety Week we celebrated Safer Internet Day to raise awareness of staying safe when we were using the Internet. First we talked about all the different places we can use the Internet. Can you think of anymore? Which ones do you use at your house with your children?

image

We read a story which helped us think about staying safe on the Internet and about what is true or not.

image

We watched a video about keeping our details safe on the Internet and not telling anyone them. If you want to watch it you can find it here or on the class Purple Mash page.

image

We’re always talking about passwords in school and the children know we have to keep them a secret. We have our own passwords for Purple Mash and websites such a Phonics Play.

image

We also talk about what to do if we’re using the Internet and we see something we don’t like. There’s lots of amazing things to do on the Internet but not all of it is good. In school we have a firewall set up so unsuitable sites are blocked. Do you have your parental controls switched on at home to keep your children safe?

It is important that you reinforce these vital messages at home too. The Internet is a wonderful resource but can also be dangerous if not used properly. It is a part of the children’s everyday life so we need to make sure they are taught how to stay safe themselves and what to do if anything happens.
