Internet Safety – Year 3 and 4

The Year 3 and 4 children had a visit today from P.C Parry and P.C Hinds to learn all about internet safety. They now know how to be S.M.A.R.T online. Safety – never give out personal information and always make a strong password. Meeting – tell an adult if anyone ever asks to meet you. Accepting – don’t accept friend requests or messages from people you don’t know. Reliable – people online have the ability to lie about who they are. Tell – if something makes you sad you must tell an adult straight away. The children participated in activities and even sang a song at the end of the session. The children were also told about a safe website they could visit to learn and play games – Schoolbeat.org. Diolch P.C Parry and P.C Hinds!

The children showed their excellent understanding by answering lots of questions, and even helped Sammy to recycle common household waste. The children also enjoyed listening to a story about a recycling superhero, Michael Recycle. Diolch to Sammy and Mr. Williams for an enjoyable, informative assembly, which helped us on our way to becoming recycling superheroes.
