Safer Internet Day 07.02.2023 
During Internet Safety Day, we discussed some real-life examples of potential problems which could happen online. I was amazed by the children's level of maturity and empathy, when discussing different scenarios. They were reflective, posed excellent questions, and gave fantastic advice and suggestions.

Children in Thistle have been learning how to code robots with specific, detailed instructions - giving a Jam Sandwich-making robot specific orders to create a snack. They then used their knowledge of instruction to program a Beebot to move in different directions.

We have been learning about technology in the world around us. We have found out the names of different parts of computers, and learned how to use a mouse to click and drag.


On Safer Internet Day the children took part in a variety of activities based around this year's theme, "All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online".  

In Fenland, the children shared stories and advice about online safety and then created videos with 'top tips'. The children in Bandy responded to given scenarios and thought carefully about how best to deal with them. Cygnet class listened to stories and helped the characters to know how they could stay safe online.
A fun-filled, thought provoking day!
