Yesterday my dad taught me about internet safety.
I have made a video about it, it is below!
The video has all my top tips in for kids internet safety.
Hopefully everyone can learn something – what do you think?
(My dad works in very boring computers!)
1. Be careful when giving out personal information on-line. Beware because if anyone gets your personal information you can be bullied and spammed or worse.
2. You should be careful what pictures and videos you post of you on the intenet. Once a picture or video has been put on the internet, it will be seen by millions.
3. Don’t open types of files like ZIP and EXE files. They may contain a virus – get it checked first by an adult!
4. Don’t give out passwords to people. It’s dangerous if people get hold of your passwords, you don’t want them logging in and sending e-mails from your account. You can give passwords to your parents though if they ask for it, that is safe enough.
5. Use passwords that people can’t guess!
6. To check if a web-site is safe you can type the web-site address into https://safeweb.norton.com
7. If a web-site makes you feel worried or upset, tell an adult straight away!
8. If someone you speak to on-line wants to meet you in real life, don’t do it. Tell your parents straight away.
Can you think of any others?
Let me know?

This is a snippet of a bit of writing that I did over the last few weeks. I am not sure if I will publish the story, it is about ten pages of A4 at the moment.
Anyway! I hope you like it?
Let me know your thoughts about it?
The stop at Life’s Doom
As the dark afternoon continued, the two teenagers had arrived in a section of woodland called Life’s Doom. The two were getting very tired, it seemed like they had been walking for days. They rambled skittishly throughout life’s doom, trying to find their way when suddenly; Connor saw a shadow emerging towards them. The shadow was lurching and grumbling. They soon realised that it was a blood thirsty man zombie. It must have murdered someone because there was blood all over its ripped clothes. Chloe screamed. Then Connor yelled. The screams echoed through the woods, but no one could hear their cries. Nobody helped.
The zombie had seen the two children and raised its arms in the air and cried in a foreign language. The zombie limped towards them, faster and faster. It moved quicker than a clocks second hand. The zombie had death in its eyes. It was like death at first sight.
The two children held hands and began to run through the trees. The twigs, leaves and branches were thrashed out of the way. As the zombie chased them – several birds were killed. Connor and Chloe were definitely next and they knew it.
They ran as fast as their little teenage hearts would take them.
Luckily for the teenagers Connor noticed there was a large rock, and he dragged Chloe behind it to hide. He put his hand over Chloe’s mouth as she tried to scream. The zombie crunched past them. He was very close and was holding a dead bird in his hand. Luckily the zombie man had not seen the teenagers hiding place. He groaned through the trees searching for them. Moments later the zombie murderer had disappeared into the distance. The teenagers were so relieved that they sighed and Chloe started to cry.
They had frantically come to the end of Life’s Doom. Chloe said that it was pretty doomful in this area.
She asked, “We should move on quickly in-case the zombie comes back again.”
Hi everyone, I wrote this poem when I was 9 years old – it is called “Grandad is”.
I have just found it at the bottom of a pile of papers at home and I thought I would post it on my blog.
The poem is in the style of Valerie Bloom, who has created some children’s poems. I was studying her poems at the time (she wrote a poem called “Pinda cake” specifically.
My Grandad is… (awesome)
de galaxy bar floatin’ in de sky
an’ flufffy kitten
chocolate chunks an’ pneapple cubes
fresh chocolate smell in de mornin’
when me wake
loadin’ up de car
basketful on shopping day
with fresh cheese strings
de pineapples flavouring in de south
sound of de school bell
ring a ding ding
de fireworks in de horizon
underneath de moonlight
an a number one o’ magic
all around me
Grandad my NO: 1 star
