Children at Hereward Primary School took part in Safer Internet Day.
Headteacher Matt Woolard said: "The issue of keeping children safe is something that is taken very seriously at Hereward Primary School.
"As part of this commitment to the welfare of our pupils, each class participated in activities this week as part of National Safer Internet Day.
"Each teacher focused on ways to promote awareness of how children can stay safe online when using social networking, apps, instant messaging and gaming."
Year 6 pupils became 'Safer Internet Superheroes’ for the day as they made capes and enjoyed face painting.
Year 3 children took part in drama activities where they had the opportunity to act out possible scenarios that may occur when they are online.
The Reception children also had an entertaining morning as they took inspiration from SMARTY the Penguin to create their own penguin faces!
After school there was a presentation to parents with a record number in attendance.
The day was organised by Scott Buckland.
He said: “A fun and education day was had by everyone. It is so important to promote safe internet habits amongst our children.”
