We have continued to learn about how to be safe today as it is Safer Internet Day.

In Pearl class, we read stories like Chicken Clicking and Penguin Pig to help reinforce the messages of how to stay safe online.


From this, we used the laptops to think about the key messages that we learnt about from the stories. Here are some of our work.

In school, we also use Hector the Protector to keep us safe.

Click here to watch the Hector’s World episodes. There are other activities that you can complete here as well.

Pearl class have made some rules that they are going to follow when they are online. Is there anything on their list that they have forgotten?

  • Always make sure that you ask an adult before you go online. 
  • Don’t talk to strangers, even they if they try and talk to you first.
  • Keep your personal information secret. This includes your name, address, age, birthday, school and telephone number. 
  • Always keep your passwords secret. 
  • Don’t put photographs of yourself online. 
  • Use a nickname instead of using your real name if you are playing games. 
  • Always tell your grown up if someone tries to talk to you. 
  • Use Hector the Protector at school if you see something that you shouldn’t and then tell a teacher. 

How to continue the learning at home:

  • Do you supervise your child online at home?
  • Speak to your child about the dangers of speaking to strangers online.
  • Check out our school’s E-Safety Blog for more information on how to keep yourself safe. This include devices such as iPads, laptops, PSPs, gameboys. Click here to access it.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for a letter coming home tonight about Internet Safety.








Internet Safety Day 2016

In Pearl class, we have been learning how to stay safe on the Internet.

We have all signed our acceptable use policy in which we know how to use the iPads and the laptops safely as well as knowing how to press Hector the Protector or finding an adult straight away if we see something on the screen that we shouldn’t do.

We have linked this to our Literacy this week and read the story of PenguinPig by Stuart Spendlow.

It is about a little girl who finds a creature on the Internet called a ‘penguinpig’ at the zoo and she wants to know more about it. She leaves her house without telling her mum or her dad where she is going but gets a terrible surprise when she gets to the zoo.

Click the link here to visit the PenguinPig website. The story can also be downloaded onto an iPad.

Pearl class were able to say what the underlying message was from the story.

  1. Think before you click.
  2. Not everyone online is who they say they are and sometimes they play horrible tricks on other people.
  3. Always tell a grown up if you see something that you are unsure about.

We had a go at drawing our own penguinpig before we made up our own made up creature. What two creatures would you put together?

What could you do to support your child at home:

  1. Talk to your child about how to use an iPad or a laptop safely at home.
  2. Create your own imaginary animal and use adjectives and noun phrases to describe the animal.
  3. Make sure that your child knows what to do if they see something online that they shouldn’t do.
