In Year 1 on Monday we had lots of children wearing odd socks for the day to remind us that being different is something to celebrate.
The children thought about how they were different to their friends and completed a comparison activity.
We talked about what bullying is and reminded the children of our STOP mnemonic - Several Times On Purpose.
We discussed who the children can talk to if they are worried about anything in school or at home and they came up with their 'Trusted Five' - these are the 5 people that the children feel they could talk to if they have any worries or problems.
We read the stories 'Elmer' and 'Giraffes Can't Dance' which both celebrate differences and then we took part in a 'Celebrating Differences' Cosmic Yoga session!
2022's Anti-Bullying Week started with Odd Socks Day. In Year 2, we discussed how what bullying means and we used the mnemonic - STOP - to remind us.
Several Times On Purpose
We also watched a video to help us understand how we can all 'Reach Out' and help others. In the photos, you can see some pictures of our work as well as Year 2 having a discussion.
In Year 5 this week for Anti-bullying week, we have completed a range of activities. We wore odd socks to celebrate differences and created a poster to show how to 'Reach out' if you are being bullied.
Later on in the week, we discussed the difference between Cyber bullying (online) and bullying in the real world and created illustrations to show scenarios for both.
We also discussed the difference between telling jokes and 'banter' and how everyone has different views which they are entitled to and how one person may take something as a joke and another person may not. The children have really enjoyed the discussions this week and have enjoyed participating in all of the activities.
