- E-Safety Day
15 February 2017 (by admin)
As a WOW launch to E-Safety day we wanted to do something memorable for the children around keeping children safe on the Internet.
With the help of One Day Creative, all the children in the school got to take part in a fun creative workshop and learn all about E-Safety through Drama.
Reception to Y3 took part in the “Into the Screen Workshop” The children used well-known fairy tale characters to highlight the importance of keeping safe online, they worked in groups to navigate their way out of some tricky situations. Will the 3 Little Pigs tell the Big Bad Wolf where they live? Will Red Riding Hood notice that Granny looks a bit different today? And will anyone be able to stop the Ugly Sisters from being horrible to Cinderella? Through playful and fun storytelling, pupils learnt how to keep safe when playing on the internet and realise that the world inside the screen is perhaps not so different from the real world after all.
"Year 1A really enjoyed the workshop about E-Safety, we learnt all about the importance of keeping our password secret and choosing a good password. We really enjoyed how they used fairy tales to get the point across because we have been learning about fairy tales in class so we already knew the stories".
Year 4-5 explored E-safety issues the same way but through a super heroes and villains theme. Some children were in charge of E-safety and had to Buzz and shout “Stop” when there was something suspicious or unsafe happening in the game. The foam numbers and letters represented the keyboard on the game and the children acted out behind these as though in the game.
Year 6 took part in a “World of Thrones” workshop, a fantasy world where all is not as it seems… They had to make smart choices about who you trust and what you reveal and, in doing so, to protect themselves and their friends for long enough to survive online. They explored the increasingly complex world of gaming, cyber bulling & internet safety! Following their workshop Year 6 then delivered an assembly for the whole school and parents about what they had learnt.
