Had a lovely day @BoltonJnrGirls we looked at our digital footprint … there was a wide range of apps used. Teachers had a chance to read some books linked to technology 📱

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.
