Anti-Bullying Week

18th November 2016

This week, Year 3 have been taking part in ‘Anti-Bullying Week’. We have been shining the spotlight on the definition of bullying and encouraging all children and teachers to take action against bullying throughout the year.
During ‘Anti-Bullying Week’, we have been looking at the difference between being rude, being mean and being a bully. This has given Year 3 a greater understanding of what the word ‘bullying’ means and how understanding the definition of this helps us to prevent bullying in our school. We have also been talking about the value of being different and how our individuality makes us special.
Through creating powerful anti-bullying posters, Year 3 have shown their understanding of the valuable messages we have been spreading this week. They have also expressed these messages through writing fantastic stories with a dilemma. In our stories, Flat Stanley has recently returned to school after being flattened and starts to get bullied for being flat. We thought about how his friends might react to this and why; how Stanley might be feeling because of it and finally, how it could be resolved.
Year 3 have worked extremely hard this week to spread awareness and look at ways of preventing bullying. We are looking forward to taking these valuable messages forward with us throughout the year and continuing to promote anti-bullying awareness.
