Work in progress:

Year 7 Year 8 Year 9
  • E-Safety

*Any kind of publishing is good for promoting the work completed in lessons. Students could quickly create a bookmark. These could be put into the school resource centre or sent home or to lower schools. Avoid using PowerPoint - anyone can get the general gist of how PowerPoint works in a very short space of time.

Don't forget that teaching e-safety is a statutory requirement.
