Where Pupils Shine

National Anti-Bullying Week

National Stand Up to Bullying Day -13th June 2018

 

Pupils, parents and staff all joined together to stand up to bullying sharing our three key messages for the day:

  • Don't be a bystander, be an upstander
  • Stay Safe Online
  • Kindness is the Key

Our Ambassadors were at the ready to share our key messages and random acts of kindness with parents on the playground before school. Parents loved receiving smiley stickers for sharing their smiles, helpfulness and positive messages with others.

Agenda

8.45am -9am – Ambassadors giving out pledges to parents on the playground

9am -9.30am – SM delivering whole school assembly – Thunderclap and key messages

3 class tasks (linked to each key theme) to be completed at some point throughout the day

Task 1 – Be an upstander not a bystander - See stand up to bullying resource pack for lesson plan –Task 2 – Kindness is the key - Choose one activity from the following:

  • Write and share compliments cards in your class (templates provided)
  • Compliments snowball –Each child has an A4 piece of paper with class members’ name on it. They write something positive about the person, scrunch each piece up and the snowballs are thrown, pick up a snowball and write another compliment about the person. Repeat until the pupils have a page of compliments that they can take home (template provided)
  • Compliments Sunflower – each pupil’s name is put on a petal template. Complete in the same way as compliments cards, but then put them together to create a sunflower display in class (this may be particularly nice for Y3 & 5 who are study the parts of a plant as it could be used as a dual purpose display with interactive labels down the side that pupils can try to accurately position for each part of the flowering plant.

Task 3 – Stay safe online – reinforce the message in an age appropriate manner regarding the use of internet surfing, Youtube, social media and gaming (approx. 2/3 of Ambassadors have a social media account and a good number have a Youtube account so this gives us an idea of the bigger picture.

Pupils could make posters, video, blogs that could be uploaded to the website or through Twitter account (NB permissions for individual pupils)

 

Homework task – Age appropriate scenario sheet covering each of the key themes

e.g.

- You are playing Xbox live and somebody you are playing against starts to be mean to you what write about what you would do?

- You see a group of people on the playground circling a person and laughing at them. What would you do?

- List as many ways that you can be kind to people as you can think of…

Etc.

Ambassadors will also meet with SM (Time TBC) to review the Anti-Bullying Policy
