Digital literacy and online safety: Anti –bullying week

In Year 5, we have been reading a book called ‘When Charlie McButton lost power’ by Suzanne Collins.

We have used to book to link with our Anti – Bulling lessons, digital literacy, and online safety.

The children have discussed the dilemma in the story and how it made the other characters feel and respond, as well the consequences for the main character.

We then , took part in discussions on all aspects of bullying, played games and used the computers to take part in activities which involved the importance of online safety, such as:

  • Passwords, then created our own safe password.
  • What PEGI means and the different ratings and symbols.
  • Using online platforms safely, by knowing what to share and what not to share.
  • What issues might arise online and how/where to report them.
