An invasion of robot youngsters at Holbrook Primary School yesterday helped raise awareness of online safety as part of the national Safer Internet Day.
The children donned homemade robot outfits, and took part in an afternoon of joint learning sessions with parents, to help understand how to stay protected online.
Other activities included robot cookie baking and interactive tasks to help the youngsters learn about safe internet use.
Richard Williams, computing co-ordinator at the school, said: “We had some fantastic costumes, and it was great that the children were thinking about safety online. There were some really thoughtful conversations, and it gives parents the time to think about what strategies they use at home. It’s our duty to equip children for the wider world, and as a teacher it’s good for me to see the children thinking about it.”
The day also helped to raise funds for a new 3D printer for the school, with the event generating more than half the £600 needed for the device and accessory rolls.
The school is also collecting unwanted CDs and DVDs to help raise money for the printer, and welcome offerings from individuals and corporate donations.
