Year 1 Not everything we see online is true
To understand that the internet can be used to find out information but it may not be reliable.
- I can explain the difference between things that are fact / untrue / opinion.
- I know that not all information online is a fact, and therefore might not be trustworthy.
- I can identify ways to check that what I have found out online is a fact / untrue / opinion
- I can describe how to get help if I find content that makes me feel upset or worried.
After reading Digi Duck Detective Book we discussed that not everything we read or see online is true or real. We then created our own fake images of characters and gave the character a name.
Year 6 Recognising Signs of Danger
To recognise some of the signs of danger when building relationships online
To identify ways in which to have a healthy balanced lifestyle when using technology
- I can describe common systems that regulate age-related content (e.g. PEGI, BBFC, parental warnings) and describe their purpose.
- I can assess and action different strategies to limit the impact of technology on my health (e.g. nightshift mode, regular breaks, correct posture, sleep, diet and exercise).
- I can explain the importance of self-regulating my use of technology; I can demonstrate the strategies I use to do this (e.g. monitoring my time online, avoiding accidents).
Year 6 watched the film Caught in the Web. In between each clip we discussed about acceptable and unacceptable behaviours when online and about not meeting up with anyone we have met and are chatting to online. We discussed strangers/predators, social media, manipulation, pressure, deception, cyberbullying, catfish, vulnerable. Children recorded on Jamboard about dangers, advise and what they should do. Here are some snippets.
Year 2/3 M Stands for Meeting
Key Learning: To understand that people on the internet are not always say who they are. We should never meet up with someone we chat to.
- I can identify M is for Meeting and know not to meet up with anyone I chat to when online.
Some questions we considered after watching SMART Crew Film and Lee and Kim’s Adventure about meeting someone we have been chatting to online.
Who do we trust offline and online?
Is an online friend the same as an offline real friend?
What are the benefits of using social media to organise events?
Look at Blackeyed Bean’s profile, he looked friendly and safe, doesn’t he?
What should you do if strangers start asking questions about meeting up?
Why didn’t she realise that Blackeyed Bean was an adult?
The children then colour coded some statements to whether it’s ok for family, a stranger, a community person, a trusted adult to do the following things:
Safer Internet Day 2022
Key Stage 2: The older children described strategies for safe and fun experiences in a range of online social environments like a gaming platform. They gave advice to an alien gamer on how to be respectful to others online and how to recognise healthy and unhealthy online behaviours and what to do about it. They commented on a variety of online gaming screenshots. They completed an online quiz:
on different online scenarios. hey then completed a quiz about their understanding and started designing a gaming TIPS poster.
Younger children read the story of Digiduck and The Magic Castle. After discussing the story with areas like what’s in a gaming world, pop-ups, purchasing awards, giving away personal information, the children explored the following activities.
Sort the personal information that should be kept private, and offline verses the information that is safe to share online. The children discussed and sorted the cards into two groups
Creating a safe gaming profile
Create your own username and strong password for the magic castle game.
Create an avatar and talk about why an avatar is used instead of a photo of yourself. I.e. your photo is personal information and so it should not be public, as it shows your age.
Cyberbullying Awareness Week – 15th November 2021
Year 6 started by watching Let’s Fight it Together Film from Childnet. They used Jamboard to give examples of what cyberbullying is and how it affects people’s lives.
· I can explain how to block abusive users
· I can identify a range of ways to report concerns both in school and at home.
Year 3 looked at how secure and strong passwords should be. We watched the Password Rap film by NetSmartz Kids and song and with a checklist, created our passwords. We then tested them out on a website to see how long it would take to crack it, therefore, seeing how strong they actually are.
- To know how to create a strong password, keep it safe and change it often
Year 5 watched a BBC film about cyberbullies taking Lucy’s phone and stole her password. They went on to send nasty messages to all the class as if they were Lucy. They then cyberbullied Lucy online.
- To know to keep my information like passwords safe
- To know to keep the EVIDENCE and not to respond back
- To know to BLOCK and REPORT cyberbullies
- To create a cyber hero for children
Year 4 watched Episode 1 from Play, Share and Like Series. We discussed the cyberbullying and bribery which took place during the film. The children then completed some questions based on the film to reinforce their understanding of acceptable behaviours when online.
- To understand how sharing online can give you some unkind, nasty comments
- To know that you can block and report someone who is unkind online.
- To understand about privacy settings and the consequences of changing them from private to public.
Year 2 and Year 2/3 watched Hectors World: You’re Not Alone where Tama is bullied online. An edited, embarrassing photo of her has been shared online. She tells her mum, who helps her sort it all out do she’s happy again. They then watched SMART CREW T is for TELL where Cara also is sent a hurtful image. We discussed how images can be edited and shared without our consent to hurt our feelings. We know we must TELL a trusted adult if there’s anything we are worried about when online.
Year 1 created kind T-shirts of the Troll from the book The Troll Stinks. We discussed the cyberbullying the poor troll received from the goats and how unacceptable and unkind it was. The T-Shirts had kind words on them like, Smile Be Happy, We Love You, Happy, Be Kind.
- I can describe ways that some people can be unkind online
- I can offer examples of how this can make others feel
Safer Internet Day 2021
On Tuesday 9th February 2021 we explored activities for Safer Internet Day. The theme for the day was thinking about an internet we trust and “Exploring reliability in the online world”.
Children used Jamboard to say what they have learnt during this years theme.
Children have also been detectives. Looking at how to make sure that the information they find on line can be trustworthy. To help them explore that task, children completed the following tasks online. Children also completed a Jargon Busters Quiz about what certain words actually mean when it comes to reliability online.
Children across the school carried out various activities relating to Cyberbullying during anti-bullying week. Here’s some work from Year 2, Year 4 and Year 5.
Year 2 Watched Hectors World – You’re not Alone. They looked at how Ming must have felt being cyberbullied and how she did told her mum to help her sort it out. T = TELL in our SMART Rules.
Year 5 watched two cyberbullying films and then created a Cyber Hero Character to remind young children that you’re not alone and to be a hero and stand up against online bullying.
Year 6 watched the film Let’s Fight it Together. We discussed the following learning intentions:
- I recognise when someone is hurt, upset or angry online
- I recognise how to capture bullying content as evidence
- I can explain how to block abusive users
- I can identify a range of ways to report concerns both in school and at home
- I recognise how I need to support my friends if cyberbullying happens to them and that I am responsible to help them to stay safe
The children then created a cyber comic where the focus was to tell another cyberbullying scenario/story and how they managed to sort it out.

Safer Internet Day 2020
On Tuesday 11th February we joined schools across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2020. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote at St Wilfrid’s and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we continually deliver throughout the year. Some of the activities we participated in during the week are:
- Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Assemblies
- Visit from Danielle, a Cyber Protection Police Officer
- Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Lessons around this years theme ‘free to be me’. The children looked at their online identity and how free you can actually be when online.
Key Stage 2 looked at their online Identity
Key Stage 1 looked at their online identity and explored a range of avatar creators to represent their face when online.
Reception read and discussed the story of Clickin Chicken and looked at the identity of one of the characters who wasn’t who they thought it was in the story.
Together as a class the children created a poster. They discussed about asking for permission when using devices and who to tell is something they saw worried them when online.
Year 5 Cyberbullying Comics
Year 4 Building Online Profiles
Year 4 have been looking at keeping safe when creating an online profile. We created an avatar to represent our face and a username. We discussed what sort of information would be ok to put on our profiles. We also explored the difference between making something Private and Public and the consequences of this. We watched the SELFIE film from Think You Know about what could happen when you make something Public. We also discussed our location and what that means if it is enabled.
Year 1 Feelings of Ming when Cyberbullied
Year 1 watched one of the cartoons from Hectors World, ‘You’re Not Alone’ . We explored the character of Ming and how she felt when she was being cyberbullied by who she thought was her friends. We found out that we would need to tell a trusted adult like mum, dad or a teacher if we were ever worried about something we saw when online.
Year 2 – Who to TELL
Children have been looking at who to tell if something worries them when online. This would be a trusted adult like a teacher, mum, dad or a police officer.
Year 5 – Friendbook
Children have been looking at the profile of Chloe Summers. They have been looking at the inappropriate behaviour she has displayed on her profile. The children wrote down these risks and suggested how she should be more responsible when online.
Year 6 – It’s Your Future
Year 6 have been looking at digital dirt and how it could affect your future. We watched the film Digital Dirt and discussed the impact of peer pressure.
Year 4 – Online TIPS
Year 4 have been creating some posters giving some tips about what to do if you come across something you don’t like when online.

Year 1 have been creating algorithms using directional language. They have been playing the Online Safety Snakes and Ladders Game from Barefoot Computing. The children had to read messages whilst they were landing on the snakes and ladders in the game.
Internet Safety Day 2018
Safer Internet Day 2018 was celebrated globally on Tuesday 6th February 2018 with the slogan “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”. Children at school were given assemblies around the theme and then carried out a variety of activities around online safety. Year 2: Digital Footprints Children took on the role of online detectives and followed the trail of two characters to see who left a bigger, unsafe footprint when they went online. They found out that it was Electra the elephant. Year 3/4: First Impressions when Sharing Images We looked at a variety of images which were shared online. We discussed what impression these images give when shared online. Some images were of children not being nice and some children posing or bragging. We concluded that we need to to give a good first impression if we share images online. We need to also have permission from others if we want to share their images.
Year 4: Jigsaw Storyboards In Year 4 we watched the Think You Know Film – Jigsaw. We discussed what happened in the film and what Becky should have done to keep safe. We used a storyboard of incidences in the film and wrote what had happened in each part which made Becky unsafe and not responsible when she was online. Year 5/6: Social Media Profiles – Friendbook In Year 5 and 6 we looked at social media profiles and the content we share online. We highlighted where the character Chloe Summers shared unsafe and inappropriate information on her Friend Book page. We then created a poster about all the unsafe things happening on her profile page.
The theme for anti-bullying week this year was “All Different, All Equal”. Each class looked at different activities based around this theme and based around the cyber bullying curriculum. Year 2 Year 2 watched the film from Hectors World “You’re Not Alone” and about how Tama was bullied online through her friends editing an image of her making her look silly. She was very embarrassed, hurt and upset and couldn’t get away from the image where ever she looked. We found out that T of the SMART rules means to TELL a trusted adult about it so you are not on your own. Year 2 then created a poster of the people they trust in their life to go and tell if they were every upset with something they saw online. Year 2/3 The children watched Hectors Cartoon and then created a Cyber Friend they could use as a widget or logo to support cyber bullying. They gave their character a name and wrote a message about cyberbullying.
Year 4 Looked at the Play, Share Aware Film about Blocking Bullies. We discussed the definition of Cyberbullying, including where and how it could happen.
We came up with a list of things we could do:
- Always be kind and polite
- Tell a trusted Adult
- Report it to the web site or administrator of the site
- Block Them
- Know that you are not on your own
- Be an Up stander not a Bystander
Year 4 Website Caution
Year 4 have been studying a topic called Website Caution as part of their work on the Internet. We have found out that anyone can put a website together and that many websites are a hoax. The children explored several websites and evaluated whether they are a hoax/spoof or whether they are actually real. This is also part of our SMART rules – R standing for Reliable. We know that anyone can upload content to the wikipedia articles and so not to always trust the information we read when online. We need to look at several websites to make sure the information is reliable and correct. Year 4 evaluated some websites below:
Year 2 A Digital Trail
Year 2 have been looking at what a digital trail is on the internet. It is your online presence, your print left behind you when you go online to upload a photo, post a message or even play a game.
We looked carefully at the trails of two characters Mizzle and Electra from Common Sense Media and explored which character had kept a good online trail or digital footprint. The children then created their own characters and drew some images of what their character could put online to stay safe and keep a good digital trail.
Year 5 Digital Footprints
We have been looking at what a Digital Footprint is and taking a look at our own Digital Footprint. It is our online presence after clicking on websites, uploading an image or even updating a blog. It is like our fingerprint all over the World Wide Web and can NEVER be fully removed. It can be shared, copied and broadcasted as mentioned in the film we watched below:
We discussed IP Addresses and how your print is traceable, copied or cached over the internet.
Here are some examples of the children’s digital footprint.
The children then created a screen saver to put on the screen so you could get some advice and messages before you go onto the internet. This would help others think before going onto the internet. The screen savers animated. Here are three designs made:
Year 5/6 Online Gaming Tips
After designing games in Kodu we explored how we need to stay safe when online gaming. Here are some tips that the children produced.
Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day (SID) was on Tuesday 7th February 2017
The theme for this year was ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’.
The focus was The Power of Images
Please go to following site for more information:
There are lots of different types of pictures or videos online, and lots of ways to look at them.
We looked at what sites they would use to watch their favourite show online, or to search for photos
of their favourite band or singer.
Mrs Sadler introduced the children to Smartie. Smartie is just like all of us, he
loves going online, and playing games and looking for pictures. Sometimes, Smartie is not
always sure what to do if something happens online that worries or upsets him. We read the story to help Smartie make some good choices online?
Children explored how photos shared online can potentially stay there forever and may reach a wider audience than they intended. They will consider how photos create an impression of their character and personality (online reputation) and will use this knowledge to develop a strategy to help them decide if a photo/image is okay to share online or not. These included images Mrs Sadler brought in an old photo album of herself and images children have shared online.
Year 6 My Digital Photo Album
Year 6 designed photos which they thought they would be proud of to share with others online. They wanted to show their skills without bragging or being vain in a selfie. They wanted images that would give a good first impression to future employees and also their family.
This half term we have been looking at cyberbullying as part of antibullying week. We have watched various films depending on the year group and have produced some work.
Year 1 and 2
Know how people feel if they are being bullied online

Key Learning: Know how to choose a strong password and how to keep it safe away from bullies
Year 2/3 explored reasons why people use passwords and we looked at strategies for creating and keeping strong, secure passwords. We discovered that if someone has your password they could log into your account and write nasty messages and cyberbully other children. We watched a film from Netsmartz about strong passwords and created some of our own.
Year 2/3 Passwords and Testing
We created our passwords by choosing a word familar to us and changing it with capitals, numbers and symbols to get a stronger password.
We tested out our first password and then our changed password to see how much stronger it was. The website we used for testing is:

The theme for the day was “Play your part for a better internet”. Year 2/3 carried out a role play session about positive and negative behaviours when online. They learnt about how people would feel if nasty comments were made about them or if their games were deliberately being destroyed in areas like Minecraft. We then looked at different scenarios and discussed what they would do in each one. SAVE Messages, TELL an adult, BLOCK the sender, REPORT to the site etc. They then created a poster showing what they would do and listened to a film clip about Blocking and Reporting:
Block and Report Film Clip by Molly and Harvey

Digital Footprints! (Y4/5 and Y5) June 2015
During the week commencing 2nd June we had our Relationship Week in school. As part of this week we also looked at our online behaviour and building online friends and relationships. Our focus was to think before we post online as we are leaving a digital footprint behind us for others to view and follow. We watched a film and then explored the Kidsmart site http://www.kidsmart.org.uk/digitalfootprints/ looking at more information on digital footprints. We designed a digital footprint screen saver giving tips as a reminder before we go onto the internet. We also went away and tracked which internet sites we used over 3 days and put them on a digital foot template. It was a lot!
Smartie the Penguin (Reception) June 2015
Reception children have been learning about Smartie the Penguin from Childnet and how to keep him safe online. During the session the children were taught this song. Ask your child to sing it to you:
Before you click, click, click
You need to think, think, think
And TELL someone……

Secondary School Drama – ‘The Selfie’ and ‘Online Gaming’ (Y5/6) April 2015
Some pupils from the sixth form at High Storrs Secondary School came into school to lead two fantastic dramas on E-Safety for Years 5 and 6. The dramas were very informative and opened our eyes to some of the dangers we can be faced with online! We were shown how to deal with some difficult situations with ‘selfie’ photographs getting out of hand and building relationships with strangers when online gaming.. Thank you to High Storrs Drama Group, you really made us aware of the issues young people are faced with on social media and gaming sites.
Y6 Friend Book Profiles
Children in Year 6 took a look at Chloe Summers profile page from her social media account and produced either a poster or wrote a letter to Chloe explaining some of her bad choices on her profile.
Combating Pictures and Suffering through Cyberbullying
Years 4, 4/5 looked at two films which show how children can be cyber bullied. We discussed the victims feelings and what they should do if they were in those situations. Please ask if you wish to watch the films shown.
Years 5/6 and 6 watched a CBBC news clip about Cyberbullying and created posters about how cyberbullying could happen, how victims feel and TIPS to deal with cyberbullying.
Watch the film: http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/26136189
Staying SMART in Cyberbullying Week 2014
Years 2/3 and 3/4 have been learning about the school’s SMART internet rules and making sure they know how to stay safe online and TELL someone if something they find is uncomfortable or are worried about. We discussed cyberbullying is when people upload embarrassing photos or people send nasty hurtful messages and texts and that to TELL someone if it happens.
They also looked at the CEOP Report button on Think U Know and School Website.
The SMART films we watched were from the SMART Crew
‘Let’s stop bullying for all’
Cyberbullying Week – November 2014
Safer Internet Day 2014- Game and App Designing
We have been developing games in Year 5 and 6 Computing this half term using Kodu (free to download). Therefore as part of Safer Internet Day this year where the theme is ‘To create a better internet’ we designed our own computer games and apps for a better internet. Here are some beginnings of our designs.
Reception Safer Internet Day 2014
Today the children have been looking at what personal information is and what they should not be putting on the internet.
The children began by showing which devices they use to go onto the internet (many children in our class do go online using tablets, phones, computers and the xbox).
We then read Lee and Kim’s Adventure Story where the children in the story meet animal characters in an online game. SID the Internet Protector helps the children make good choices whilst playing the game.
We then played a game called ‘Protecting our Secret Stuff’. Our job was to protect our teddies by saying Yes or No to what information about our teddies we could give out on the Internet.
Example of Year 4 and 5 at St Wilfrid’s Primary giving their ideas about what they think Cyberbullying is during anti-bullying week. See their padlet for their ideas.
Children in Year 6 watched some films and produced some wordle clouds about key words like feelings and advice associated with cyberbullying.
