  • Newswise Family Workshop

    Published 24/11/23, by San Kaur

    Thank you to all the parents that attended our Newswise parent workshop. Newswise workshop allowed parents and children to learn about what constitutes real and fake news. The children took part in a number of activities establishing the difference between facts, rumours and opinions used in news reports. Along with this, families understood the fabrication and altering of digital images and how this can give people false information. Children were then asked to create their own image to show different realities and perceptions of something. The children finally delivered their own news reports, putting into practise what they had learnt throughout the workshop.

    This week, Year 5 and Year 6 held an Internet Safety Workshop. 

    We discussed the impact of sharing personal information online and what is acceptable to share. The children and parents took part in searching for themselves online to see what their internet presence was like, in which we explored what is put online could have a positive or negative effect. Parents and children also took part in creating secure passwords to keep information safe. In addition to this, parents were given a take-home sheet with additional information on how to stay safe. The workshop allowed both children and parents to really think about practices they use online while staying safe.
