This year, we are taking part in an exciting project in which two of our pupils have become iVengers. Throughout the year they will be carrying out a number of exciting tasks and secret missions to help children, parents, staff and governors to gain a better understanding about how to stay safe online.
This is a very exciting role and we will be updating this website to share our progress. Be sure to keep checking this page to find out what we have been up to.
Meet the iVengers:
I'm Harry and I'm in Year 5. I am excited to be the first ever iVenger because I will be able to help the school community to be super safe online!
I'm Spencer and I'm in Year 5 too. Being an iVenger will be a pleasure because I get to do lots of work to help my school! I am looking forward to completing the tasks.
We are very proud to have received three certificates for our iVenger work this year!
We have been awarded our Bronze certificate for completing tasks 1 and 2. Our Silver award was for completing tasks 3 and 4.
Our iVengers were blown away when we had a visit from Traci (the Lead iVenger) who presented us with a Platinum certificate in recognition of the commitment we have made to the project. What's more, we even got three ultra-rare gold iVengers badges. We have never felt so motivated to continue our work!
OUR HOME LEARNING TIPS!
We are aware that children are spending lots of time online during this lockdown so we have put together a short video sharing some of our top tips. See the video below.
LOCKDOWN - Online Safety Poster Competition
To get children thinking about staying safe online, we are holding a poster competition to promote online safety.
Here are some of our entries - aren't they amazing!
Mission 1 - Assembly
Our very first mission was to produce an assembly to introduce ourselves, our roles and our next task to the rest of the school. The assembly went well and now everyone knows what our role is all about.
Because of the rules about Corona virus, we had to do the assembly on Zoom, but the children could still see our PowerPoint and it went really well.
The PowerPoint we shared is below:
Mission 2 - Top Tips at Christmas
We completed this mission just before Christmas. We are aware that lots of children in school will be lucky enough to get some fantastic tech for Christmas. While this is fantastic news, we also know that new tech potentially poses new risks. This inspired our second task.
Our second mission was to ask children in every class to come up with their three top tips for staying safe online. Teachers helped the class to select their top 3 and then we put the list together. Our 12 top tips have been shared on Class Dojo but are below as well.
Mission 3 - Collecting Data
For this mission we wanted to find out what you all get up to online. We sent you an online survey and have had a good look at the results.
We thought that what people did online was fairly typical for their ages and we were pleased that lots of you have online safety rules at home. Not many of you had seen upsetting things (which is great) and most of you did know who to tell and what to do if you did become upset.
We noticed that a number of children in school are accessing games and Apps that are not aimed at their age group. This included Tik-Tok and Fortnite.
We want to make sure that parents and carers know how to keep their children safe online so we have spent lots of time completing Mission 4.
Mission 4 - Video aimed at Parents about Apps and Games
For this mission, we had to choose one of the games and apps that are being used online and produce a video to grown-ups to show them the good things and bad points of it.
We hope you like our video - we had lots of fun making it.
Mission 5 - Healthy Selfies
Our iVengers have worked with all the Year 5 and 6 children to help them to gain a better understanding of healthy selfies. They explored around 30 pictures and identified whether they were safe or unsafe.
It was great to hear the mature discussions they had and hopefully this has helped them to make super choices when taking pictures.
Below is the PowerPoint we used to deliver the lesson.
Mission 6 - NEW iVENGERS
This was our hardest mission yet! We had to look through the Year 4 applications and then interview the potential new iVengers! All the applicants were fantastic but Jasmine and Morgan were the ones who were selected to become our new iVengers. We are very excited to see what they achieve next year!
Here they are getting their very own iVenger badges!
