Tuesday 6th February - Safer Internet Day
Today we carried out lots of interesting activities.
First we listened to a story about The Three Little Monsters and then discussed the issue of commentating positively and what to do if something worries or upsets us online.
Then we thought about who we are connected to e.g. our family and friends, our school and home town. We sat in a circle and passed a ball of wall to a child of our choice that we are connected to and explained the connection. We ended up with a huge physical web of connections. See photo below
Next we sat in a circle and payed each other compliments. We wrote these compliments on hand shapes and cut them out. We then joined them together to show our theme for the
day . Create (making our hands) Connect (joining together) Share respect (our compliments to each other)
We made a 'Kindness Tree' and every time someone is kind to us we will take a blank leaf and write their name on it with a description of what they did. Then we will attach it to our tree.
It is only day 2 and our tree is filling up fast because we are so kind to each other.
We are creating a power point with a different slide for each group of animals. We talked about how to use safe searching and how to obtain copyright free images.
Today the children went on a technology hunt-identifying examples of technology & its uses in different areas of the school. We discussed school rules on the use of technology in school.
In DT we talked about using safe searching when on the internet and then used Google Safe Search to research Fire Engine design.
