SAFER INTERNET DAY 2017!
The whole school participated in activities related to safer internet day today. Our pupil online safety team launched the day's activities to classes and set each class their objectives for the day.
Each class then focused on a specific aspect of online safety to concentrate on...many creating amazing posters, role plays, charters and videos.
We also joined in with the safer internet centre's 'unite for a better internet' campaign. We considered the things that could make the internet a happier, safer place and made our own happy emojis... take a look at some of the class photos below....
