Say NO to Bullying!


During our PSHE lessons we have been thinking about bullying, what it is, what to do if we see or experience bullying and how to stand up for ourselves and others.  This week, we had some scenarios that the children thought about and then created a 'freeze frame' for.  They then described how they felt in this situation.  The children were so thoughtful, with many commenting about how hard it was to pretend to be a bully, knowing that it would make someone else feel sad.  Through this, the children really showed all of our school values of  empathy, kindness, caring and respect and tolerance for others.  Thank goodness we have such wonderful children who know how to "Say no to bullying."

PSHE - Say no to bullying!

Christmas has arrived!
