The Beavers have been thinking and sharing ideas about how they can stay safe online.

Stay Safe Online

Of course, the main way that Beavers can stay safe online is to only use the Internet where a trusted grown up can help them.

Having said that, we thought it would be a good idea to get the Beavers thinking and talking. So, we set up a game where the Beavers listened to some statements. They had to choose which character from some cards they thought was talking.

It turned out that although some of the statements were obvious, all was not as it seemed. Some of the characters were not telling the truth, and one statement did not even have a matching character!

This made the Beavers realise that the person they are talking to online may not be who they say they are.

Next, we looked at some scenarios that introduced some children who use the Internet. Two of the children fall out and one sends a nasty message to the other. We talked about how this made the person feel, and how the Beavers would feel if it was them. The story then moves onto another two children who exchange a nasty message, and we talked about what the children should do. Likewise, what would the Beavers do?

Lastly, the children in the story come to realise that they have been unkind and apologise. How would the Beavers react to an apology?

So, some useful thought and discussion about how to stay safe online. We asked the Beavers to each write a pledge that they felt would help them to stay safe online, and this was pinned to the board!

So, there was just time for a quick game of Dodgeball to bring the evening to a close.
