During this year’s Anti-bullying Week, the children from Y3/4LJ thought carefully about the theme ‘United Against Bullying’. The children watched a videos from the Anti-Bullying Alliance, before thinking of ways we can all unite against bullying. Each child designed their own jigsaw piece to show how we can work together to prevent bullying. The children decided we should all try to be kind, help others and show respect to everybody at all times. The children also looked at the differences between bullying and teasing.
The children in Y3/4HI watched the ‘Unite against bullying’ video which talks about how they can make a difference, especially when all of the jigsaw pieces fit together to create a united front.
Each child added their own jigsaw piece into the whole class jigsaw. The children took it in turns to come out to the front and read a puzzle piece.
The children really enjoyed this activity and tried hard to think about how they could make a difference to someone that might be getting bullied.
For Anti Bullying Week, the children in Y1LT have been learning about the different ways someone can be bullied. We already knew that the things we say with our mouths and the actions we do with our bodies can hurt the feelings of others, but we were shocked that our actions online and indirect actions (such as repeatedly not letting someone join in a game to deliberately to hurt them) can also be counted as bullying. The children have identified some types of bullying in different pictures and were able to say what they would do to get help if they, or someone they knew was getting bullied. The children created posters to tell other children how to be a good friend to others, with a drawing of ‘nice’ actions e.g. sharing toys
In Y4MT we have been looking at the different types of bullying. There are four main types of bullying and they are physical bullying, emotional bullying, verbal bullying and cyber bullying. Each child in the class was given a list of actions and had to sort them into the correct bullying category.
