Throughout this week we have focused on forming and maintaining positive relationships through mutual respect, courtesy and tolerance and on the importance of recognising and standing up to bullying in all its forms, including online, or ‘cyber’ bullying.
We began on 9 November by wearing blue for the day (Just be you and wear blue!) to raise money for the charity Bullying UK, wore odd socks to celebrate our differences on 12 November and finished today with live performances of the theatre production The Power of One. In it, actors dramatise three scenarios then analyse them with the children.
They teach children that bullying will not stop unless it is challenged – by anyone who sees it – and that intervention by an adult is required. The solution to each scenario is to report bullying.
