We kicked off Anti-Bullying Week by wearing odd socks. Proudly we displayed our odd socks and thought about how we are ‘odd’. Through doing this, we celebrated how we are all unique and that there isn’t anyone the same. We have our own thoughts, looks, likes and dislikes etc.
We sang along to the ‘Andy and the Odd Socks’ song ‘Choose Respect’. Have a listen and join in: The Odd Socks.
The Anti-Bullying Alliance’s overall theme this year is about respect. We used their video as a stimulus for discussion, drama and poster making. Anti-Bullying Alliance Promo Video 2018.
Most children in KS1 will be able to tell you about STOP. It helps us to define what bullying is; when something happens Several Times On Purpose. It also reminds us to act if we find that we are subjected to bullying; Start Telling Other People. The importance of STOP is continually taught throughout the year, to all children, but we have enjoyed a special week of focusing on it.
