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.

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
