We have a great Anti-Bullying Week, reminding ourselves that we are All Different but we are All Equal.
During the week we talked about how our British Values impact on our attitudes to others:
The Equality Act states that everyone should be treated fairly, this includes showing respect to others; allowing them to be themselves even if we disagree with their beliefs.
We focused on the labels that we wear - see the PowerPoint below.
Our theme song was 'Unique' by Andy and the Odd Socks.
The week started with a whole school assembly that introduced the theme for the week, "I have the right to be safe". The other focus was about the power of words - our words can build up or tear down. The children responded well to the ideas presented and really enjoyed singing a song that became an anthem for the week, "You are a star".
During the rest of the week classes unpacked the themes in discussions, art work, singing and drama activities.
The week ended with a special celebration assembly where children from different year groups presented work to the whole school.
A good week was had by all.
