E-saftey in Scholes.

Friday 22 March 2019

As part of our internet safety learning, we have been looking at the different types of websites and their uses.

First, the children discussed their understanding of  website addresses, URLs and what they stand for.

In particular, we looked at the difference between ‘safe’ websites with encrypted security  and those which are not secure.

We did this by checking the padlock on websites and those which have https and not just http. The ‘s’ shows us how this is secure.

We also looked at different domain names and what they are short for, like .com, .co.uk, .org, .gov, .net.

Then, we searched different website types and discussed what we found out.
