Safer Internet Day 2022
For Safer Internet Day we talked about respect and relationships online. We discussed how to behave online and agreed that we should always be kind and not hurt people’s feelings - just as we behave offline, at school and at home.
The children listened to a story ‘Digiduck and the Magic Castle’. This taught them about how important it is to keep your passwords secret, never to share them and always ask a trusted adult to download any games because they may take money without you knowing.
We talked about avatars on games and how we create them to protect our identity as you should not put photographs or personal details about yourself online. The children then designed their own avatars.

An algorithm is a step-by-step set of instructions used to solve a problem or achieve an objective. A clear algorithm can help create code that does what it is supposed to do.
