Topic-Online Safety

We are still all spending a lot more time than we would normally on a computer. I’m sure a lot of us are also keeping in touch with friends and family on computers or screens and no doubt, we’re playing a few more games on-line than we normally would, too.

This is all okay and it can be a lot of fun, but we need to remember how to keep ourselves and others safe whilst using the internet.

I’d like you to follow the link below. It will take you to the ‘Think You Know’ home learning activity pack 5.


Work your way through the page.
