‘National Day of Action – Bullying NO WAY!’
Friday 19th March ‘National Day of Action – Bullying NO WAY!’
Across classes at Seacliff Primary, students participated in a variety of lessons, tasks and activities to raise awareness of the definition of bullying, the impact of bullying and strategies to prevent and stop bullying to mark The National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence.
YEAR 3, 4 & 5 : Ms Baronia’s Room 10 and Mrs Ridge’s Room 11 students came together on Friday 19th March for the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. Students in both classes worked collaboratively to demonstrate their ideas of ‘bullying’ through mini role-plays.
Students were placed into small groups. Each group were provided with a different scenario and card to act-out. Students were also provided with a variety of ‘resilience’ strategies in which they incorporated into their role plays. Students enjoyed this task as well as gaining more of a deeper understanding of the impact of bullying.
YEAR 4 & 5: As part of their Health lesson and in marking the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence, Ms Cameron & Mrs Flato-Beckett’s Room 13 students watched ‘The Bully and the Shrimp’ and discussed the story. They then watched the ‘Bullying is Never Ok’ clip with further discussion.
Students then brainstormed in four groups:
What bullying is.
What bullying isn’t.
Impacts of bullying and what we can do to prevent and stop bullying.
Following this brainstorming session, students created skits of different scenarios and performed these for each other. During each performance, students used the ‘resilience tool kit’ tools of IGNORE, FRIENDLY TALK, WALK AWAY, POWERFUL TALK and REPORT.
