Safer Internet Day: Is It All Fun and Games?

Safer Internet Day: Is It All Fun and Games?

Safer Internet Day 2022

Safer Internet Day 2022 is on 8th February. This year, the theme is ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’.

Safer Internet Day celebrates all that the internet has to offer, including internet search, gaming, creating content, and socialising with friends and peers. It’s co-ordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, and the organisers hope to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully and creatively.

In the primary classroom, this means laying strong foundations, setting out expectations for how pupils behave, and explaining what to do if something unexpected happens.

We’re here to help you do just that with our selection of resources. All but the Lesson Plan are free to play until the end of the week of Safer Internet Day!

Lesson Plan

The easiest way to access our resources is via our Lesson Library area, where you’ll find everything all in one place.

Simply log in, go to the Lesson Library on the welcome page, then choose Computing > Basic computing > Staying safe online.

Pin this lesson to your setup, print out the lesson plan and download our resources pack. Then, once the lesson is complete, check your pupils’ understanding with the quiz!
