Safer Internet Day
On 9th February, it is Safer Internet Day. This year’s theme is all about looking at the reliability of the information we see online and deciding whether what we’re reading is true or just fake news! It might be a good idea to start off by looking at the information on the Safer Internet Day Information document to find out all about this year’s theme and get you thinking about what you can and can’t trust online. Then have a go at one or more of the activities. You don’t need to complete all of the activities, just choose one or two of the ones that interest you. Keeping safe online is so important and a skill that will benefit you both right now and in the future, so it’s really important that you have a look at these lessons. Have fun and stay safe!
