To celebrate Safer Internet day, Pupils in Year 3-6 were set a challenge of designing their own E-Safety poster. The response to the competition was fantastic with over 100 entries, with each poster being unique in design and message.
As a result, the judges had a difficult task in choosing four winners. However, after much deliberation, we are delighted to announce that the winners are (Rohan 6P), Karol (5M), Aden (4W) and Ola (3M).
Their impressive posters included creative design, attention to detail and a positive E-Safety message. We hope they enjoy their prize of attending a workshop at the Apple Store. Finally, we would like to like to congratulate everyone who entered!
(Rohan 6P), Ola (3M), Aden (4W) and Karol (5ML)
'Together for a better internet’
On the 5thFebruary 2019, four members of our Digital Leaders Team delivered an important assembly to celebrate Safer Internet Day.
‘Our aim was to inspire all children to use the internet sensibly and respectfully’ (Coleen, Digital Leader).
A quiz then tested the children’s knowledge about permission and consent.
To increase further awareness of E-safety, each year group received sessions on the importance of staying safe online.
Year 1 and 2 used the app ChatterPix to retell the story of Smartie the Penguin.
Year 3 and 4 played the google game, Reality River.
Year 5 and 6 played the online quiz games, Kahoot and Quizizz to test their knowledge on internet safety.
We also received a visit from the local Police who expressed the dangers of the internet, whilst reminding us of important rules to follow when online.
At St Michael and St Martin, we encourage all parents to frequently discuss internet safety with their children. The internet has changed the way we learn, interact and communicate. However, we must also be aware of the potential dangers.
