This week (5th February) was Internet Safety Day. The theme this year was ‘ Together for a Better Internet.’ As always, the aim of Safer Internet day is to get everyone talking about how to use technology safely, responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. As part of their computing lessons, the children have been developing their understanding of the internet; what it is and how to be respectful when accessing the WWW.
To support parents with discussing online safety at home, we have uploaded a video along with some conversation starters. The parents/children on this video are keen to talk about their understanding in this fun quiz game. Now over to you….
