Safer Internet Day 2019 followup | February 14, 2019

On Tuesday 5th February, Richard Avenue celebrated Safer Internet Day 2019. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

This year we held individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children how consent works in an online context.

We watched videos on the topics and then held question and answer sessions so the children could explore how to ask, give, and receive consent online. We finished off the sessions by asking the children to design posters and online chats that deal with the issues of consent.

Some of these posters and online chat designs are shown below:

SID2019

On Tuesday 5th February, Richard Avenue will be celebrating Safer Internet Day 2019. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. Throughout the Day we will be holding a number of activities, including a whole school assembly and individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children how consent works in an online context and will ask young people to explore how they ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data.

Here are some videos about the day aimed at different age groups:

Here is the campaign film for Safer Internet Day 2019 which we hope sums up clearly what the day is all about.
Zap and Zoom – A Space Race – film for 3-7 year olds.
Data Detective – film for 7-11 year olds.

The children take part in a Show Racism the Red Card activity

All the children from Year 5 took part in a day put on by Show Racism the Red Card. They completed a range of tasks throughout the morning about racism including some of the vocabulary which they may encounter and where it originates from. The sessions were a great success with the children receiving important information along with some great prizes for participation.
