Following last week’s workshops with year3 & year4 pupils, lots more online safety learning going on at St Thomas Chequerbent with year5 and year6. Looking at the types of apps & games we play & the game’s suitability.
Lots of support & interesting discussions.
Had a great afternoon at StThomas Chequerbent working with Year3 and Year4 we looked at all the different websites, games and apps we used.
There was a lot of discussion about how, on some sites, strangers may try to start conversations with young people; we looked at the difference between compliments based on appearance and our personality.
Some children agreed that some of the games they were playing where not suitable and will talk to their parents about no longer playing such games, we all agreed to check the privacy setting of such apps as this will help to keep us safe as well.
It’s a record for us this week – seven schools supported in one week – three of which were full days!
Timetable was planned an hour sessions working with every class – our activities included looking at our digital footprint and discussing the vast array of games the children play on whilst online. Some classes looked the book Chicken Clicking and discussed good things we can share vs. things we should not share, which also included actually sharing and eating fruit at the same time!
In the afternoon there was some thought provoking discussions around GTA and COD – should our children heads really be filled with such content?
Our final discussion topic – Should children under the age of twelve take their mobile device to bed? Some heat discussions but the school bell rang before we could really get to grips with this discussion, one for another day!
Fourth school of the week, @JohnsonFold to work with Key Stage One pupils looking at what we share in real world vs online, First we looked at all the good things
we can share liked toys, friends, food. We then went back to our groups to enjoy friut from our sharing bowls, we had to use our maths brians as we had to work how to share the oranges fairly!
We also read the book Clicking Chicken, Chicken Clicking likes to shop for all her friends online. But not everything is what it seems…
Together we then discussed the sorts of information we should not share online, we liked the idea that our passwords are like our toothbrushes – not to be shared!
We fit alot of learning into our hour workshop … English, Maths, Online Safety, PHSCE & Writing.
This week saw our first ever Digital Leaders – Esafety Champions Workshop. This workshop was attend by ten schools that each brought at least three pupils destined to be ESafety Champions in their school.
The digital leaders will offer support for their friends and throughout the workshop shown how to identify possible e-safety issues arising around school.
They will be encouraged to understand that they are a very important set of “eyes and ears” as sometimes their friends will not share things with their teachers but discuss things that are worrying them with their friends.
The feedback from the pupils and staff was fab and they were all looking forward to going back into school to share their knowledge.
