Chicken Clicking- a staying safe online story

In Reception this week we wanted to remind the children about staying safe online as part of ‘Safer Internet Day’.  Although the children in Reception are very young, we know that sharing this message early is very important.  We reminded the children that at their age they should be supervised by an adult when online and that some  games, images and videos are not suitable for children.  We read the story of ‘Chicken Clicking’ by Tony Ross and found out how easy it is to purchase items accidentally or see things that may worry you.  Later in the story Chicken Clicking makes a friend online who he believes is just another chick like himself but it turns out to be a sly fox trying to lure him into the woods.  After the story, we discussed the mistakes Chicken Clicking had made, stranger danger and we also discussed what to do if we are ever worried or not sure about anything.
