Lynn’s Greyfriars School took part in Safer Internet Day with all ten classes, from reception to Year 6, spending Tuesday focusing on web awareness.
They watched clips, did online quizzes, designed posters and explored cyberspace. They talked about learning and communicating safely online and how to report any problems.
All classes put their skills i to practice by creating their own class websites where they could share safely with known friends and password-controlled access.
The school has recently invested in learnpad tablets and chromebooks and the childrenused these to create their website pages.
David Baird Parker, Norfolk County Council ICT officer said: “It’s fantastic to see the staff at Greyfriars taking such a proactive and enthusiastic approach to ensuring the children know the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of using the internet in a safe and enjoyable way.”
The day was organised by Sarah Cook, the school’s ICT leader, who said that the school plans to continue the focus on e-safety across the curriculum so that children can continue to keep themselves safe online.
