This week, we have been looking at how to stay safe. We can do this in lots of different ways.
It was Internet Safety Day on Tuesday 6th February and we read the stories PenguinPig and MonkeyCow by Stuart Spendlow and Amy Bradley.
These books help us to know that we shouldn’t talk to strangers online as they might be pretending to be someone that they aren’t and that passwords need to be kept secret.
We used Purple Mash on the laptops to create our own rules for staying safe online.
In the afternoons, we swapped classrooms with Ruby class to learn more about staying safe.
With Miss Varley, we have been learning all about how to stay safe on the road.
STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, THINK, HOLD HANDS
WIth Miss Mason, we looked at different ways to stay safe at school, online and with our personal hygiene.

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.
