26-4-22 Online Relationships

To explain why I should always ask a trusted adult before clicking ‘yes’, ‘agree’ or ‘accept’ online.

Lots of things online are cleverly designed to make us 'click' on them so today we talked about what it could be e.g. an advert, a message from a stranger, a popup, a download, something tricking us or a computer virus. We agreed that as children we cannot be expected to know what to click and what not to click so it is important that we ask a 'trusted adult'  e.g. a parent, carer or teacher  to help us. We learnt a slogan - 'Remember: Think before you click, click, click.'

To explain who can help me if I feel under pressure to agree to something I am unsure about or don't want to do. 

We talked about the meaning of the word 'permission' - to ask if it is ok to do something before you do it. We thought about times when we have to ask permission to do something and what would happen if we didn't ask permission before we did certain things.  We  realised that it is important to ask permission when we are online too and it is also really important to remember that people should also ask us for our permission.  It is ok to deny permission but if were not sure about whether to give permission, we could ask our trusted adult.

To explain the difference between things that are imaginary, made up or make believe and things that are true or real.

To explain why some information we find online may not be real or true.

We remembered learning that the Arctic Circle was an imaginary line around our world. We discussed the question  “Do you think it is easy to tell if something online is real or not?”  We concluded that sometimes, it is really hard to tell and reminded ourselves that anyone can create content online. Just because it is online, it doesn’t make it real.

Anti-Bullying Week

15th November to 19th November

Online Bullying

To explain what bullying is, how people may bully others and how bullying can make someone feel.

To explain why anyone who experiences bullying is not to blame.

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

Troll Stinks

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:

  • Don't respond or reply.
  • Save the evidence... take screenshots.
  • Tell a trusted adult.
  • Block the bully.
  • Report it!

Finally we talked  and wrote posters about how important it is to speak to people nicely online.
