Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day 2018
At Frome Valley, we dedicate a whole day to staying safe online every year.  This year, the overall focus of safer internet day was; ''Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you'.  The day started with a whole school assembly which was about staying safe online when playing familiar games or doing searches for pictures online.  One of the most important things we learnt that was whenever anything happens that worries you or is not what you expect, you must tell an adult!
In reception class, we started by reading a story about 'Smartie the Penguin' who gets a new tablet for his birthday and starts playing games online.  He comes into a spot of bother when things start popping up them he is not expecting.  Mummy penguin taught us a song to help us decide what action to take if this ever happens to us.
"Before you tap and click, you need to stop and think! And tell someone!"
We then learnt about keeping our information safe and staying private online.
We made a 'compliment web' in the classroom. We have to pass the string to a friend and say something nice about them. At the end, we could see that we were all connected, just like when we are on the internet. We then thought about how important it was to be saying nice things, rather than horrible things. If we it was horrible things that were being said, we agreed that we wouldn't want to be connected in the web!
