Safer Internet Day 2017
This year the theme was 'Power of Image'. In the Infants we looked at what pictures we could safely share online and what pictures we couldn't safely share online. We decided that pictures that had personal information in them shouldn't be shared online as people could find out about us. In the Juniors we looked at first impressions and how they can form people's opinions of you without them really knowing you. After this we created our own photo album of pictures we would like other people to see of us.
In March 2017 some Year 5 children will be going to the Barney and Echo Internet Safety Road show. Safer Internet Day 2017 will take place on Tuesday 7th February with the theme 'Be the change: unite for a better internet'.
