During the week we have reflected on the many issues surrounding bullying. The theme of this years Anti Bullying week is ‘Choose respect’
What does this actually mean and how do we show respect to our friends?
RESPECT ‘have due regard for (someone’s feelings, wishes, or rights)’
In our Living and Learning session we thought how being bullied makes a person feel. We talked about all the emotions involved such as being scared, terrified, worried, heart broken.
Some people were honest enough to say you may feel so frustrated if you are bullied that you might feel like you want to ‘do the same to them’.
After a very grown up circle time, we agreed the best way to stand up to a bully and STOP bullying is to tell someone. Always.
