Our digtal leaders this year are:
Tilly F and Oscar S (Year 6)
Emily G and Edward W (Year 5)
In the following weeks, the digital leaders will be collecting information from their classes regarding how much screen time each class is exposed to. They will then highlight ideas on how much is too much and what to do if they are experiencing any issues from too much exposure. They will be asking their peers what digital devices they use and what programs and applications they spend time on. The Digital Leaders will try to help them use them safely and answer any questions the children have about using digital devices.
Our four digital leaders made some online posters and took them to be displayed in Haltemprice library. The library used them as part of their Safer Internet Day campaign too. Well done Tilly, Oscar, Emily and Edward.
Online safety in the community.
The digital leaders wanted to put their posters in other community venues. The Willerby Guide Hut is proudly displaying our posters helping hundreds of local Rainbows, Brownies and Guides stay safe on the internet.
