As part of our Anti-bullying and relationships education this term, we will be learning about bullying, gender stereotyping, different families, homophobia and celebrating differences. Year 6 will also learn about Racist and Religious Hate Crime.
Anti-Bullying Week 2018 - 22nd - 26th October
'Celebrate Difference, Choose Respect.'
The national theme this year is ‘Choose Respect’ but we also want to incorporate celebrating difference and homophobia – the idea is to choose respect over bullying and to demonstrate a respectful attitude to all people.
Monday 22nd October – Firehorse Productions - Anti-bullying Theatre – ‘The B Word’
Monday 12th November – Odd Socks Day! Children will come to school wearing odd socks to celebrate difference. Andy and the odd socks have written a ‘Choose Respect’ song that can be played on this day - https://www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/anti-bullying-week/odd-socks-day-anti-bullying-week-0
We will be taking part in activities during this week but also as part of our PSHE sessions the following term. Key topics of discussion will include:
Children will also discuss general bullying, including bullying definitions, scenarios and what to do if you are being bullied. Each child will receive a book to bring home, which we hope will encourage further discussions with family members. If you have any questions, please contact us.
