Today is Internet safety day so P1B have been learning about how to stay safe online. We read a story about Smartie the penguin who got a new laptop for his birthday. Different things happened to Smartie’s laptop such as him getting an email from someone he didn’t know. The children then had to decide if he should tell his dad or try to fix the problem himself – of course, he should always tell his dad! Daddy Penguin taught Smartie (and the children) a little song to help them stay safe on the Internet;
Before you click, click click,
You need to think, think, think
And tell someone!
We then had a long discussion about some scenarios and categorised them as to whether they were safe or not safe to do when using the Internet and finally came up with 5 important rules we had learned.
