In KS1 children are much more confident in using online devices such as Smart phones, tablets, PC's and laptops; even our televisions at home can access online channels and sites such as you tube, netflix and catch up TV.
In Year 1, again, we concentrate on keeping our personal details safe; using the 'Hectors World' resources. We ask children to question what type of information they are posting online and whether they think they are putting themselves at risk. We look at the different types of personal information that they might post online and how we can overcome some of the risks. We also work with pupils to help them understand what they should do if they do find that they need help or support. We always encourage pupils (of all ages) to speak to a trusted adult such as, parents/carers, grandparents, aunts, uncles or even their older siblings, if they feel that something is not quite right.
An overview of learning in KS1:
- Keep personal details safe
- What are personal details?
- What websites/apps are we accessing at home?
- Is it safe/suitable for us? Did we ask an adult?
- Who are we talking to online?
- Are they who they say they are?
- What is Cyberbullying?
- How do we treat others online?
- What is being a 'Good Digital Citizen'?
- What should we do if we lose control?
- Who should we talk to?
We look deeper into age appropriate content with children in Year 2 and online gaming. We know that by this age they are beginning to discover the online/virtual world to be a very exciting place. They may meet up with friends from school in virtual areas and talk to them from their own home. We teach pupils how to deal with situations and conflicts, we encourage all pupils to become good role models and to be a good 'Digital Citizen'. Again, the fabulous resources available to us are the 'Kim & Lee - Animal Adventures' we base our training and eSafeguarding planning on the training video.
