Tuesday the 8th of February was Safer Internet Day this year with the theme ‘All Fun and Games? Staying Safe Online’. Children in primary have been working on activities with their class on the following topics:
EYFS and KS1 have been reading a book called Troll Stinks! And looking at how being mean online can affect others. They used the drawing software Paintz to draw their own troll and sent a voice recording on SeeSaw of what he should do. You can see Aashna, Lilymaya and Adira’s trolls below:
Years 3 and 4 have been looking at digital balance and creating adverts and presentations on what you can do to find Digital Balance in your life. You can see below Eva and Nolah have been using Paintz to create their presentation videos, click them to watch.
And Valarie created a presentation using images and text that includes the important digital 5 a day.
Years 5 and 6 have been looking at Fake News and learning to question what they read, and find out if an article is true or not. They then went on to create their own ‘Tree Octopus’ images by layering images using photo editing programme Pixlr to show just how easy it is for anyone to fake an image. They did not disappoint, they created some amazing images.
In Year 6 Abaan has done a great job! And Lillian challenges herself to create something else – who said pigs can’t fly… above the himalayas?!
Saahiti in year 5 also did this amazing unicorn cat and Wafia proved that there are dragons in the mountains!
We have also had a TBS Safer internet superhero Competition which has had so many AMAZING entries, the finalists of each Key Stage have been judged by Mr Paul who teaches ICT in secondary who said it was such a hard decision. Runners up get 5 house points each, and prizes will be given to winners next week:

Safer Internet Day is an annual celebration aiming to raise awareness of emerging online issues and concerns amongst young people, from cyberbullying and social networking to digital identity.
In a 30-minute Live session (in partnership with the UK Safer Internet Centre), we learned about how we can stay safe, responsible and wise in an increasingly digital world, with tips and advice from some of the biggest personalities on the web.
KS3 were also tasked with producing some posters helping to inform others on how to deal with trolls! As you can imagine, the standard was high (KS3 really know their stuff!). Below is a sample of what they had to offer.
