In Year 5 this week, we have continued to follow the story of ‘The London Eye Mystery’. More clues are being discovered daily and we are deepening our understanding of the characters, and how they are changing over time. The children created their own news reports of the child’s disappearance where they considered the verb forms they used.
On Wednesday, Year 5 took part in an E Safety workshop. The children had a lot of fun creating drama activities to show the positive side of the internet and explore some of the issues it creates. The focus was on being KIND:
K- kindness. Think about how you treat others online and make the internet a safe and happy place to be.
I-Inappropriate. Identify inappropriate content and make sure we are only accessing sites, games and apps designed for our age group.
N- Never over share. Keep your personal information safe. Do not give others your passwords, address or telephone number and think carefully about what photos you put online.
D- Don’t hide away. If something you see online troubles you, report it.
It was wonderful to see the wealth of knowledge the children already have. They spoke maturely about some of the dangers on the internet and what they do in order to keep themselves safe.
The children also touched upon some new concepts, such as digital footprints and how social media can affect mental health, which we will explore further in class. Year 5 also found out about CEOP. They understand this is another place they can report online abuse to police at any time.
Have a great weekend
