Year 5's Recipe for using the Internet Safely

  • Sprinkle a little kindness into the mix, by not sending chain e-mails or viruses.
  • Add a little protection when using the internet. Make it so friends can only view your profile and use good anti virus software.
  • Be careful what you are viewing.
  • Definitely do NOT cyberbully, it is a lot like normal bullying but with a twist of internet.
  • Another no is to not give your personal details out, you will regret it if you do.
  • Add a pinch of security, only talk to people you know.
  • Why not, instead of a real picture of yourself, add a picture of something you like, such as a cartoon animal, or a favourite poster.
