These are the objectives that will be covered in Year R and KS1 for Online Relationships. Lots of these objectives will be covered more than once over the year. Each year group will build on the knowledge gained in the previous year group.
- I can recognise some ways in which the internet can be used to communicate.
- I can give examples of how I (might) use technology to communicate with people I know.
- I can give examples of when I should ask permission to do something online and explain why this is important.
- I can use the internet with adult support to communicate with people I know (e.g. video call apps or services).
- I can explain why it is important to be considerate and kind to people online and to respect their choices.
- I can explain why things one person finds funny or sad online may not always be seen in the same way by others.
- I can give examples of how someone might use technology to communicate with others they don't also know offline and explain why this might be risky (e.g. email, online gaming, a pen-pal in another school/country).
- I can also explain who I should ask before sharing things about myself or others online.
- I can describe different ways to ask for, give, or deny my permission online and can identify who can help me if I am not sure.
- I can explain why I have a right to say 'no' or 'I will have to ask someone'. I can explain who can help me if I feel under pressure to agree to something I am unsure about or don't want to do.
- I can identify who can help me if something happens online without my consent.
- I can explain how it may make others feel if I do not ask their permission or ignore their answers before sharing something about them online.
- I can explain why I should always ask a trusted adult before clicking 'yes', 'agree' or 'accept' online.
