Safer Internet Day 2017
On Tuesday 7th February, we celebrated Safer Internet Day. Even though we regularly discuss the importance of staying safe on the internet, we dedicated a day to this cause to show how important it is. The theme this year was based on positive image and video sharing – something that we felt was very important! This Safer Internet Day, we aimed to empower children to have a positive time online and inspire everyone to ‘Be the change’ and use the positive power of image to help create a better internet.
Grange Valley had a selfie booth in the library! We followed a checklist to ensure that our selfies were safe. The checklist included things such as ‘who will see this image?’ ‘is my photo appropriate?’ This reinforced the importance of safeguarding ourselves when posting images on the internet.
Year 5 also spoke in assembly about this importance cause, teaching everyone to make a positive impact on the internet and make sure that they are safe! We also took part in workshops with the Catch 22 team and reinforced the need to stay safe on the internet. Key Stage One read a story 'Clickin Chicken' and Key Stage 2 discussed the importance of staying safe on Apps and ensuring that we know who our 'friends' are.
Overall, we had a great day having fun online but making sure that we are safe! Here are some of our photos below!
