We are looking at the digital 5 a day and discuss how technology can be useful in daily life if used effectively by remembering the 5 key factors - 

1. Connect

2. Be Active

3. Get creative

4. Give to others

5. Be mindful

Ask your child over the next few weeks to share with you the digital 5 a day. 

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
