At St. John Fisher we are following the national curriculum for computing which aims to ensure that all pupils:
E-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school.
Every year children take part in different activities based around the theme for Internet Safety Day.
In 2018 the theme was ‘Create, connect and share respect’ and activities included creating coloured feeling mood wheels, watching and discussing videos, creating drama, taking part in quizzes, looking at digital footprints and creating word clouds. The day was great fun and all children and teachers were involved.
In 2017 we looked at the power of the image as part of Internet Safety Day. Children had the opportunity to work with a professional photographer – watch this to see more about our work.
Year 5 children regularly have the opportunity to take part in a Click-Safe theatre workshop in school creating a play in a day based around Online Safety. This gives the children the opportunity to spend a day thinking about using technology safely in a fun way. At the end of the day they then perform the play to other children in KS2 as well as parents. These photos show year 5 in rehearsal in May 2017.
Meet our school digital leaders – children who wanted to take on this role had to complete an application form saying why they wanted the role and why they would be right for it. The children on the team are in years 3, 4 and 5.
