Year 3 Computing

Coding:In year 3 we start to teach the basics of coding. Look at the video to see why!

During the Autumn term pupils have watched a series of on-line safety videos from Childnet International called The Adventures of Kara, Winston and the SMART Crew (These cartoons illustrate 5 e-safety SMART rules and include a real life SMART Crew of young people, who guide the cartoon characters in their quest, and help them make safe online decisions.) We have made our own on-line safety posters based on these rules.

SAFE Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you're chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.

MEETING Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents or carers permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.

ACCEPTING Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don't know or trust can lead to problems they may contain viruses or nasty messages!

RELIABLE Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other websites, books or someone who knows. If you like chatting online it's best to only chat to your real world friends and family

TELL Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
