This year’s Anti-Bullying Week took place from 16th to 19th November, based around the theme One Kind Word.
We started the week with Odd Sock Day where we celebrate our differences – everyone is unique and we all have different talents, no-one should be bullied for being different. During the week, the children were all Secret Angels. They picked a name out of the hat and had to be super kind to that child all week, but without making it too obvious! I wonder how many children guessed who their Secret Angel was? All week, we were on the lookout for our Anti-Bullying Superheroes too! 😀
As part of our Anti-Bullying Week, we have also been looking at British Values and celebrating the ideas of Democracy, Rule of Law, Tolerance, Respect and Individual Liberty.
School Council met on Thursday to discuss how the school should manage any instances of bullying. Prior to the meeting, the classes held a discussion so that their school council reps could take along their ideas – democracy in action!
The children loved singing along to this year’s song too – One Kind Word with CBeebies star Andy Day and his band – Andy and the Odd Socks! (The video can be found on YouTube if you would like to sing-along too!)
