0902 on: E-safety Presentation
On Thursday 29th September the Digital leaders did an E-safety presentation. At the open evening we had a great time and thankfully it went well. My favourite part was when a member of the audience was handing out our leaflets the person shouted out, "Leaflets! Get your Leaflets here! Thank you to all the parents that came.
We did it !

We did it!!! Well done everyone I'm really proud. We conquered our fears! We have a new Digital Leader Alfie.
1002 on: Fire Safety!
Today we learnt about fire and how to deal with it! A fire fighter came in to our school to explain how to stay safe when a fire happens. I really enjoyed it. I learnt that if there was smoke you must crawl low, so that you don't get the poisonous gas into your lungs, and head for the nearest exit with fresh air. Does anyone remember what to do if they are alight with flames?

Today I have learnt that, to have a secure password you need to have a long and strong one. You need at least three capital letters and also at least 8 -14 characters.These can be lowercase letters, symbols, numbers, in fact anything on your keyboard. Also, make sure you don't have any personal information e.g your name, your address, your telephone number or your school. You must make sure you can remember it.YOU MUST NOT TELL ANYBODY YOUR PASSWORD OR WRITE IT DOWN, OR STORE IT ON THE DEVICE YOUR USING!
You can check how secure your password is by logging onto this website and keying it in. http://www.passwordmeter.com/
