During spring term children will be using their research skills on the internet to find out information about Christopher Columbus and the journey he took across the world.
As always we will have a focus on e-safety to ensure children are staying safe on technology.
E - Safety
During Autumn Term the children will also be learning about the dangers of being online. We understand that technology is a huge part of the children's lives, however if they are to be using it in school and at home we need to ensure their safety.
The children will be creating E-safety posters and have a better understanding into safety issues when online. They will be looking at:
How to use technology safely
Online chat room danger/Games online (Social Media)
Using search engines safely
Identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
