It was fantastic to join pupils at Avishayes Primary School in taking part in a Be Internet Legends assembly and I wanted to share these free resources with you.
Be Internet Legends is an interactive educational programme from Google and Parent Zone which helps primary school children across the UK become safer and more confident explorers of the online world.
Developed in close collaboration with experts, children and schools, Be Internet Legends focuses on five internet safety pillars:
Being Sharp about what they share.
Being Alert to scams and phishing attacks.
Being Secure by creating strong passwords and looking after their personal information.
Being Kind to others online.
Being Brave by talking to trusted adults when they come across something they’re not sure about.
There are lots of free resources available for teachers, including a downloadable curriculum with ready-made Google Classroom slides and interactive national assemblies open to all primary schools (parentzone.org.uk/nationalassembly). Schools can easily spread activities and lessons across a range of age groups and assess progression – as well as use the interactive lessons to save valuable planning time.
