Monday 16th November - Friday 20th November 2020
For anti-bullying week 2020 Year 3 took part in lots of activities to explore the theme ‘United Against Bullying’.
First, we identified why anti-bullying week happens. This week aims to educate people all about bullying and the ways in which we can help.
Bullying is a repeated action – this means that the incident happens over and over again.
We identified the different types of bullying.
Physical bullying involves pushing, pinching, hitting or kicking somebody or damaging their belongings.
Verbal bullying involves hurtful comments such as calling names, teasing or threatening them.
Social bullying means excluding someone, such as leaving them out of a game or conversation, telling others to leave someone out, talking behind someone’s back.
Cyber bullying involves receiving online abuse, emails and text messages.
Our first task was to create a ‘Recipe for a Good Friend’. We wanted to create a good friend using key ingredients or characteristics.
Bullying can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone but it is important to remember that we have the right to feel safe; no one should ever be bullied, in school or out of school.
To further help us understand the theme ‘Change Starts with Us’ we completed a challenging reading comprehension.
In order to stop bullying, we all have to make a change.
Another of our tasks was to act out some challenging scenarios regarding bullying. This really opened our eyes as to what the victim of bullying would feel like.
Finally, we drew up a cartoon strip, demonstrating the change of a bully.
We are ‘UNITED AGAINST BULLYING’.
