Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day took place a week early at Oasis Academy Ryelands.

We decided to celebrate our Safer Internet Day a week early due to it being Science Week next week. Everyone spent Tuesday busily thinking about different ways to stay safe online. 

In Reception, we talked about what the internet is, what devices the children have at home and read a story about a penguin and how he stays safe online. The key message was ‘Speak to a grownup’.

Year 1 discussed the good and bad things about the internet and made posters.

Year 2 watched internet safety videos and then made a mind map of how to stay safe on the internet.

In Year 3, the children learnt about passwords and how they can create a memorable password that cannot be guessed easily by anyone wanting to hack their accounts. 

In Year 4, the children learnt how to use safe internet search engines such as Kiddle and KedRex.

Year 5 learnt not to speak to strangers online and never to give out contact details or personal information online as people may not be who they say they are. They also spoke about the affects of cyber bullying.

Year 6 looked at online identity and other ways to stay safe online.
