The theme for this year's Safer Internet Day is:

'All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online'

In Key Stage 2,  the children looked at a story of an alien who had come to Earth as a tourist because they’ve heard so much about our incredible internet, and especially the games we can play online.
The alien wanted to experience online gaming and the children had to be its guide. We discussed being safe, how to protect yourself online and what the alien should do in different online scenarios.
