Earlier this week Year 3 explored online identify during Safer Internet Day. We spent the day focusing on online identity and exploring whether we are truly free to be ourselves online. Our first activity let us explore our own online identity by looking at what we like to do online, this included our favourite emoji’s, which games we like to play, who we stay in contact with online and what we use as our profile picture. Next, we were lucky enough to have the e-cadets join us to deliver a lesson on how to be a good digital citizen, this allowed us to create our own video’s about how we should behave online. In the afternoon, we completed an extended write based on Safer Internet Day. Class 7 looked at a piece of text and replied with how the child should act online as an agony aunt and Class 8 responded to ideas about ‘free to be me’.
It was a great day and all the children shared ideas about how they can keep themselves safe online. Well done Year 3!
Here are what the Year 3 children have to say about the day:
“We had an assembly about how to stay safe online” -Poppy
“Safer Internet Day is a very important day to learn what we can do online. I am an e-cadet so I had to teach Class 7 and Class 5 about what a good digital citizen is” -Nathaniel
“We drew pictures on a wheel about what we like to do on the internet” -Alissah
“I learnt about what are good and not good things to use online. I think avatars are a good way to hide your identity online” -Leo
