Anti Bullying Week

This week it is National Anti-Bullying week across the country. In school, we are have all been exploring what this means in a variety of different ways. In year 4, we decided that we would like to create mini-plays to demonstrate what bullying is and what bullying isn’t. We discussed what a child being bullied should do and who they could tell.

First of all, as a year group, we decided on a definition of what bullying is. We feel that bullying is when someone deliberately and repeatedly says or does something unkind. The bully is usually trying to have power over someone else and we felt that there were many reasons why someone might be a bully. Following on from this, we went through a series of scenarios and decided whether it was or wasn’t bullying. It was then time to get into out groups of threes and create our play scripts.

We discussed what we thought our play should be about. It needed to be something that other children could relate to.

As a group, we then came up with characters, a scenario and a way for the issue to be solved. This formed the basis of our play script.

We finally performed in front the rest of our class. Taking feedback on how we could improve.

Tomorrow, we will be having an Anti-Bullying assembly and some of us will be acting in front of the whole school. Check out the other year group blogs to see what they present.
