Living and learning: I know what consent is.

Thursday 19 May 2022

This week, the children have been talking about body image. We began by discussing what body image is. They came up with this definition:

Body image is our idea of how our body looks and how we think it looks to others. This can include our feelings and thoughts about our height, weight, shape, skin colour, appearance or attractiveness.

We discussed how our body image is influenced by a range of different things such as TV, social media, celebrities and many more. The children recognised that it is important to consider the positive aspects about yourself and when you pay someone a compliment it should be about their personality or something they’re good at, not about appearance. We should ‘fill each others buckets’ with positivity.

The children wrote on each others buckets with their compliments. There were some very happy faces by the end of the lesson.
