15th November to 19th November
This week we talked about what we do online and the devices we use to access the internet. We discussed how, just like real life, our digital life can make us happy or even sad. We suggested who we can use technology to talk to e.g Nan and Grandad, friends, mum & dad but we learned we should not use technology to talk to strangers. We thought about how we would feel if someone says something nasty online to us. We also talked about who we could ask for help if we were worried about anything we saw or heard online.
We read the story Troll Stinks by Jeanne Willis
After we read the story we discussed some of the issues that arose like taking the farmer's phone instead of returning it, searching through someone else's phone and sending mean messages to the Troll, someone they had never met.
We rehearsed what we should do if we are bullied online:
Finally we talked and wrote posters about how important it is to speak to people nicely online.
We discussed the school rules on the use of technology in school.
All the children signed to show their agreement to these rules.
We displayed the Acceptable Use Agreement in the classroom alongside our Online Safety poster.
