Online Safety!

Online Safety

Year 5 had a great morning learning how to stay safe online with Martin Bailey ( @Animate2Educate ).

We started the morning by using the internet to find out information about ‘Tree octopi’. The children all believed that a tree octopus was a real creature because the website looked genuine and it had photos and quotes from people who have seen them. This showed the children that they are not to believe everything they see on the internet no matter how convincing the site looks.

After that we learned about not sharing our private information with anyone on line because they might not be who they say they are.

Finally, we finished the morning by creating our own ‘WeeMee’ which is an avatar that the children can use as their profile picture. Using an avatar is much safer than using their real picture. If you would like to create your own ‘WeeMee’ you can download the App - ‘WeeMee’ for free.
