The eCadets have been very busy this term ensuring we are all e-safety smart, making Henry @eCadets and @minieCadets They set challenges for the whole school during the digital literacy week to ensure all children and teachers stay safe whilst on line.


They started the week with an assembly showing the whole school the eCadet video about using technology. The facts were incredible. We couldn’t believe how many children use games on line each day. They then visited every classroom and shared a short film they had made about their ideas for internet safety rules.

Our mini eCadets set the challenge for Dosbart Ceirios to build a police station for Henry and the eCadets. Dosbarth Ceirios and Mesen have enjoyed role playing being Henry and checking everyone is being e-SMART. They also talked about how they feel when they receive an e-mail that uses kind words and drew a picture of how it made them feel. They then talked about what they liked to do on the computer with their friends and what they should remember to keep safe. They made a road sign for us to remember good behavior on line.

Dosbarth Hywen and Onnen drew a means of transport for Henry to keep the internet a safe place for children, these included a rocket that has a special antenna that detects if someone isn’t safe. Lucky Henry.Dosbarth Mesen got creative by making a Headquarters for Henry using a cardboard box which Ceirios had fun exploring with too.

The eCadets have been educating keystage 2 about PEGI ratings. They worked collaboratively to devise rules for PEGI rating for ages 3, 7, 12 and 16. which will be shared with the whole school in an e-safety assembly after half term. They had great fun and enjoyed working with their friends. They then designed logo’s for different Pegi ratings.
