Here is an interesting video to start a conversation about online safety...


  1. Excellent Elephants -

    We watched the video as a class and discussed if we should go on the internet without out asking our parent. 6/20 said it is ok to go onto the internet without asking.

    When talking about what we would do about the pop ups, we said we would tell our parents.

    We talked about getting a message from someone one we though we knew and we said that we would ask our parents to see if they knew them.

    We talked about getting a message from a previous student and most said they would tell a parent.

  2. Cheeky Monkeys' class think:
    You should always stay safe online and check with an adult.
    You should follow the SMART rules when using the internet.
    Never give out your personal information online.

  3. In the video, we see a young girl (about 4/5) who is playing an online game. It’s clear to see this child does not have experience of esafety. Esaftey is SMART. If you look on the Greenfields website you can find out what this means. In this video, the child accepted a file (a pop up) which caused a virus and her device didn't work correctly. Fortunately, she told a responsible, trusted adult who helped her to close the files and sort the issue out.

    Soaring Eagles would like you to all stay safe online, so here is the link to the SMART website.

  4. The girl in the video seemed unsure of how to stay safe on the internet. She accepted a virus through Pop Up because it looked cute and she wanted it. From this we know she needs to stay safe online and be SMART. Luckily, the girl signalled for her dad (who is her trusted adult) and he helped find the solution. We must be SMART online and be aware of the hazards on the internet.

  5. Remarkable Rhinos think:

    You should always tell an adult you trust if something pops up on your screen.

    Never click on something that looks really tempting. It could be a scam. This is called CLICKBAIT and can be used to get you to websites that are upsetting or that could attack your device to hack your personal details.
