On the week beginning Monday 12th November we took part in Anti-Bullying week 2018. During the week we took part in a range of activities that educated pupils about bullying and how to prevent it.
Monday - Odd Socks Day
Children and adults wore odd socks giving everyone an opportunity to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes them all unique.
Year 6 pupils who were Anti-bullying Ambassadors or Playground Buddies attended the Greenwich borough Anti-bullying conference at the Professional Development Centre. The event included a series of activities led by pupils from Royal Greenwich secondary schools, a song writing workshop and fun lunchtime activities. We were particularly proud of one our Year 6 pupils who won the Anti-bullying acrostic poem competition and won a £10 book voucher.
Tuesday - ‘Knowing me, knowing you’ Performance
The theatre company did a performance promoting diversity, friendship and acceptance and the need to accept one another for who we are when celebrating our differences. It addressed the issues of playground bullying as well as the contemporary issues around Cyber-Bullying.
Wednesday - Superhero Day (Led by the School Parliament)
During this day children donated 50p to wear Superhero costumes. In return for the donation children received an official Anti-Bullying week wristband. Pupils also designed a Superhero with the winning designs being printed onto a T-shirt.
Thursday - 'Stop Speak Support’ Cyberbullying Day
Children learnt the code of conduct and watched animations to positively change their behaviour online.
Friday - Children in Need
On Friday 16th November we had a Crazy Hair Day where children brought in 50p to be donated to ‘Children in Need’ to have crazy hair. During the day we covered a table top Pudsey Bear with pennies and had a Children in Need Assembly where Pudsey Bear came to visit us to help us to explain the significance of the day. Pupils also took part in the Children in Need Super Movers Active online session - Get Your Ears On.
