Last week was Anti-Bullying Week. Anti-Bullying Week presents a great opportunity to reinforce messages about how our school approaches bullying, and for children to develop a deeper understanding of what the term ‘bullying’ really means. Children wore their pyjamas to school on ‘Friendship Friday’ as a demonstration or their awareness and support.
In PE Year 4 explored different forms of bullying, and discussed the way victims may be feeling as a consequence. We used dance and gymnastics movements ideas to convey the different forms bullying and the impact it has on the victim.
Children later came up with ideas of how we can address and stop bullying that may be taking place. We talked about the way we can support our peers, and show kindness to those who appear to be feeling sad or lonely. Children chose movement ideas that they thought would display these actions in the second part of their movement piece.
