No Phishing

Standard

At the start of this year we have been looking at e-mailing.  Everyone has been given an e-mail address and there own password.  It would be great that is by half term we can all remember our secret password and no longer need to use the label.

We are very carefully thinking about e-mail addresses we trust as there are unfortunately people out there that try and trick and scam people by PHISHING – using e-mail address and fake e-mails to try and trick us.

Wartime Artwork

Standard

In our topic lessons, we are learning about WWII. As a part of this, we looked at some work by famous English artist, L.S. Lowry, to help us to understand what Britain was like during the 1930s. We took inspiration from Lowry to create our own pieces of art.

Staying Safe Online

Standard

With the start of the new school year we revisit all we have learned about internet safety and how as we get older it is still relevant, in fact as we get even more competent with a computer we can do far more so come in contact with far more people in the digital world.

We know that in school we have filters and monitoring software that is used to keep us safe but sometimes even with these in place we need to TELL an adult when we feel uncomfortable.

Remember our school computer rules.

  • Don’t switch off the program or close the screen.
  • Only use technology when you are supervised by an adult.
  • Close the laptop or turn over an iPad.
  • Tell an Adult.

But we don’t just use computers in school we use them outside, where there aren’t as many filters in place.
