As part of Anti Bullying Week, in our online safety lesson we were looking at our online reputation and the things that we should share online and the things that we shouldn’t. We discussed different things that could be shared and decided that anything that was our own personal information shouldn’t be shared with others.
This week, Bluebirds had an online safety lesson to understand how to create a powerful word. They chose their favourite colour, number and food. The children combined these with symbols, using upper and lower case letters, to create an effective password, longer than 8 digits.
This week, Bluebirds enjoyed an interesting “unplugged” computing lesson, to understand the difference between the World Wide Web and the Internet. After learning about this, the class completed a close activity to check their understanding. Lots of children learnt new information so it was a really worthwhile lesson!
On Friday, Bluebirds were introduced to the SMART acronym with a fun but informative video about considerations for keeping safe on line. Afterwards, Bluebirds were busy designing posters to show their understanding.
Bluebirds compared the differences between writing emails and letters and created a vein diagram together. The children thought about the persuasive letter they wrote in English and considered what parts are needed in an email.
The class were able to spot the differences between an email and letter, find mistakes in an email and answer some final quiz questions to show their understanding.
