Year 5

Online Safety



In year 5 the children will discuss all aspects of online safety.

We will discuss using avatars, not sharing personal information, age for and the use of social media, being kind online, stranger danger, locking down profile settings, blocking and  CEOP. We also discuss how to maintain a healthy profile and how to look after our well-being whilst online.

We will watch a short video about keeping personal information safe.



 Safer Internet Day - SID – is on the 11th February 2020.

 The focus this year will be “Together for a Better Internet".

 The children will be doing age appropriate workshops the entire week.
