18 Nov Anti-Bullying Week
Awesome Anti-Bullying Week 2019- Change starts with US
Our annual Anti-Bullying Week 2019 has come to an end and what a week it has been! We began our week with a fantastic workshop from Open View Education- this focused on the theme of making a small change= BIG DIFFERENCE. The children engaged well with the 45 minute interactive assembly and then a number of classes took part in hour long workshops throughout the rest of the day.
On Monday we also saw our Anti-Bullying Poster competition take place with over 125 entries and a winner being announced next week. On Tuesday, Mr Still led an assembly on the theme of the week ‘Change Starts with US’ which was hard hitting and insightful for the children. This was followed by Anti-Bullying Biscuit making which saw over 150 children come along and ice their own anti bullying biscuits. On Wednesday, Mrs Brodie ran an Anti-bullying Art and Craft session which had over 50 children attend, making anti bullying butterflies which looked fantastic! This was also ODD SOCKS DAY , which saw most of our children wearing odd socks for the day, this was a celebration of everyone being different and unique, the children enjoyed this! On Thursday, we had the theme BE YOU AND GO BLUE DAY, our children embraced this theme and many wore a range of bright and colourful blue outfits to celebrate being YOU! Thursday also saw Mrs Smith run an Anti-Bullying Rap and Song writing session in which children sang and rapped their way through Anti-Bullying lyrics, this was very popular and some of the songs were really good! The last day of the week, Children In Need, was a perfect link to anti-bullying and a great way to end our week. The lunchtime club saw children create Anti-Bullying Poetry which the children really enjoyed, the winner of this will also be announced next week.
Throughout the week our PSHE has focused on Anti-Bullying and the concept of change starting with us and the importance of being an upstander in situations. Each day this week, the class teachers have shown the classes a number of Anti-Bullying videos linked to the theme of change starting with us. It has been a fantastic week and the children have engaged really well with all the themes and activities that they have been involved with. We will have many Anti bullying activities over the next few months as we begin our journey towards the Anti-Bullying Charter Mark Accreditation.
Thank you to all the parents who supported this week! Mr Still
