E-Safety Week 5th February 2018
All classes thought about how they can stay safe while on the Internet both at home and in school. Nidderdale watched the Jigsaw video from Think U know about being careful with information. They talked about what they could do to stay safe on line.
Malhamdale learnt about safety through Smartie the penguin and learnt a song about thinking before you click. As a class they talked about what to do if someone is mean to you online and how to report or block something on line.
