Below we will be posting some pieces of work that were made during the week across the school.
In KS1, pupils were looking at their online identities and what is good to share and what should be kept private. They created posters which had pictures and text about things they enjoy online and offline and were asked to tick or cross/red or green whether it should be kept private or not.
In KS2, pupils were looking their online identities and trying to guess the identity of the sheet they were given based on the clues on it. They also discussed what identity is and how to show a positive identity online.
Two of our pupils also created a song in their own time and we would like to share it with you below.
Year 3 also created posters as part of their homework. Here are a couple of examples.
