Safer Internet Day has passed but there's nothing out of date in this video. Watch it with your class at any time.
Join our amazing pupil hosts Isla and Alex for this 20 minute lesson / assembly, originally for Safer Internet Day 2022, on the theme of online gaming and staying safe on devices.
There is nothing that dates if if used weeks or months after the day, so if you have just found it, you can still use it.
There are questions to discuss as a class, top answers from the pupils of All Saints Benhilton Primary who tell us what they think, plus a gaming scenario to watch and even a singalong!
Please read the notes below before using. We think it will be lots of fun! By the way, find this page again at sid.lgfl.net
Teachers - read this first!
Important notes for teachers:
► the focus is on gaming and staying safe online
► it is aimed at 7 - 11 year olds (that's KS2 in Eng / Wales, Y4-7 in NI and P4-7 in Scotland)
► the video includes an extract from our 'Going too Far' and our 'Undressed' song (very relevant in the light of the latest news). Content warning - the themes covered are realistic and important and age-appropriate. We do not consider them to be scary but please be aware that game-play footage is shown, plus a text message implying violence (not at all graphic) and how to respond to that, plus mention of getting undressed online (nothing explicit or scary or talking about motives etc, but please be aware. If you want to check those particular bits first, watch from 6m49-11m10 / 14m-16m46
► the video is in YouTube but we've tested it and it even works in strict restricted mode
► it is just under 20 minutes, including discussion times (decide in advance how you want to do that - pairs/groups/as a class?)
► you can read the discussion questions here if you want to be prepared first - they have 1 or 2-minute countdowns but if you need longer, just press pause
► features pupil voices - it is hosted exclusively by amazing pupils from All Saints Benhilton Primary and we would like to give them a big thank you and tell them they are amazing! Why not tweet them to tell them how great they are (remember to tag @LGfLDigiSafe too 😉)?
Well done St Dunstan's Primary, Cheam!
Thanks to all the schools which took part and shared their experiences.
The winner of our competition to win five Chromebooks was St Dunstan's Primary in Cheam. You can see them in the photo on the left, which was the winning entry in the draw! They said:
" The children were very engaged and there was a lot of excited chatter in the room. They learnt the importance of respect and who to turn to if they needed help. It was great for them to be reminded of these important messages by their peers - the children really took to it. "
