Anti-bullying Week in Year 6!

power-for-good

Anti-Bullying week highlights and focuses on bullying, and encourages all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying, not just this week but throughout the year.

The theme of Anti-Bullying week this year is ‘Power For Good’ and there are three key aims:

  1. To support children and young people to use their Power for Good, by understanding the ways in which they are powerful. Also to encourage individuals and groups to act so they are able to stop bullying and create the best world possible.
  2. To help parents and carers to use their Power for Good and to support children with problems relating to bullying and to work together with schools to stop bullying.
  3. To encourage all teachers, school support staff and youth workers to use their Power for Good, by valuing the difference they can make in a child’s life, and acting to prevent bullying and create safe environments where children can be safe and achieve their best.

Today, we listened to a story about a girl called Lucy. This story was about cyber-bullying and how important it is to stay safe online.

We looked in depth at different characters within the story including: Lucy (the victim); the bullies and the parents of Lucy and the bullies. Below are some of our ideas.
