This week some of our Digital Leaders met with Mr Bright to discuss how our children and staff keep themselves safe when online.
At Birchwood we follow the SMART rules –
- S encourages young people to be safe by not giving out their personal details online
- M draws attention to the risks associated with meeting someone you only know online
- A highlights the risks of accepting emails, pictures and text messages from unknown sources
- R is a reminder that not all information found online is necessarily reliable
- T encourages children to tell someone if something happens or they meet someone online that makes them feel uncomfortable
Listen to our podcast about this, on the link below. This will soon be available on our school website under the curriculum tab, Birchwood Beat Radio.
Hello! Us again!
We recently came into your classes (KS2) with a quiz - how did you do? Did you remember how to stay safe online? We think you did a great job and we hope you remember this when you are online over the summer holidays.
We know you are all super at keeping yourselves safe online after our quiz, but have you thought about your network of trusted adults recently? Who would you speak to if you were worried about something or had a problem online? We hope you have a fantastic summer and stay safe online!
Bye for now! Digital leaders
We found out lots of new things about Purple Mash and got to code the newest coding robots. We loved it!
We also met Michael Rosen who signed our books and did some sightseeing of London's landmarks (Tower Bridge, London Bridge and the London Eye) while we were there.
This was one of our favourite trips as digital leaders!
Thanks for reading!
Year 4, 5 and 6 digital leaders.
Last time you saw us doing our Digital Leaders work was on Safer Internet Day where we shared some online safety messages about being kind online. Can you remember the ideas we shared to keep ourselves safe online?
We have a big surprise coming to Birchwood. It is an Oti-bot! You might remember us telling you about it after TTS came to see us. We were excited about Oti-bot after our visit to TTS and were super excited when Mr Coleman said we could get one! Oti-bot can help us with all different subjects and can show all emotions: happy, sad, angry, confused and excited. He can be controlled with an app so we hope you have been learning lots about algorithms to help you control Oti-bot. We can't wait to show him to you!
