Year 5

To start our online safety in Year 5, we have began with our self-image and identity unit. We started by making our own avatar, making it look exactly like us with any extras we could add. Things like our favourite colour or a hobby we enjoy. 

We then played a guess the word game looking at the words copy, alter and modify. We noted down what these meant and then added notes to our original avatar showing how we could alter or modify the avatar so it didn’t look exactly like us. 

After creating our online avatars, we then looked at current online profiles to question what responsible choices these people have made, whether that be information in their profiles or how they are acting online. We knew that both of these can effect someones online identity in negative ways if they are not done carefully and with serious thought.
