Online Safety Celebration Assembly
On the 12th and 19th June we held two celebration assemblies, to which parents were invited to view the online safety work that each class across the school has created this year.The assemblies were a huge success and I'm sure that all the parents that attended were very impressed at the hard work each and every member of our school had put in.
Unfortunately, we are unable to post videos of the live performances. However, photographs from the assemblies will also be posted here soon.
Everyone in our school learns about how to keep safe online and is prompted to make safe decisions regarding their online safety every single day. We make use of ICT all the time at home and school; whether it be on our smart phones, tablets, laptops or desktop computers. Therefore it is important that we consider ways to keep ourselves and those around us safe each and every day.
In this section we will share and celebrate some of the work we do throughout the school about online safety.
Year 5 wrote and produced some fantastic videos to depict their ideas for making the internet safer.
The children had some great ideas, for instance:
1.One group suggested that everyone in the world should be issued with a unique pin number when they turn 16 which allows them access to adult suitable websites. Until then, children under the age of 16 would only be able to access limited, child appropriate, areas of the web.
2. Another group of children thought that each search engine could rate each website they link to with a certain amount of stars, e.g. 1 star = websites with inappropriate content, 2 stars = websites only appropriate for adults, 3 stars = websites appropriate for all.
3. One of the other groups came up with the idea of a security system for social networking sites where people's pages would be monitored and they would be issued with a ban from the site which varied in length according to the offence they committed, e.g. offensive language would receive a 1 week ban from the site.
We were so impressed with the creative ideas they had, well done year 5!
