Keeping safe online was the key message for pupils on Internet Safety Day.
Activities were held throughout the day for all age groups at George Carey Primary School in Barking on Tuesday.
Year six hosted a debate where youngsters discussed how they should act in certain situations such as what to do if someone you don’t know sends you a friend request on a social networking site.
The younger pupils made posters and talked about their experiences of using the internet.
Parents were also brought up to date, receiving links to resources and videos and information about short cuts and abbreviations used by youngsters.
