Year 2 Not Again Poem
Year 2 looked at the poem 'Not Again' as a way of exploring what bullying is. The children hear the poem and from it had to work out what bullying was. They discusses ideas with each other and the teacher. They enjoyed hearing the poem but really disliked what was happening, especially as the poem was left with the child feeling lost. As a challenge they had to come up with a final verse. Here is the new and improved 'Not Again' Poem.
I am being bullied
And I have no joy.
It happens nearly every day
By the same boy.
On Monday, Seth pushed me
Straight into the wall.
On Tuesday, he stomped on my bag
And that's not all!
On Wednesday, he took my lunch.
I found it in the bin.
When we played footy on Thursday
He kept kicking me in the shin.
I stayed at home on Friday
Pretending to be sick in bed.
Seth's making my life miserable
As I am always scared.
Back at school on Monday
Seth hurts me on my birthday.
I think I'll tell the teacher
Before he causes me more harm.
The children have used teacher in the poem, but know that it is important to tell any adult if they think they are being bullied.
Above you can see pictures from Anti-Bullying Week. You will be able to see Year 3 role playing scenarios which include a bystander. Nursery's what it takes to be a good friend mind maps. Year 2's what to do if your being bullied posters and Year 5's Childline posters.
We have been developing our children as members of society, as part of this we have achieved level 1 in the Rights Respecting Schools Award.
The children have been learning about their rights and the rights of others. At the start of each year the children recap these rights and make a class charter. These charters are used in conjunction with the class rules and are a guide for how to behave in school.
Barney and Bertie Bear
PSHE in Reception is everywhere. One way the children are encouraged to partake in PSHE is by the use of Barney and Bertie Bear. Each week a different child takes home the bear and they are tasked with learning something together. In the past children have taught Barney/Bertie; how to cross a road safely, make a sandwich, how to put on a jumper and how to play nicely together.
Coping with Change
Part of PSHE is teaching children about how to cope with change. The big change within school is moving year groups. Each year in July the children spend the morning with their new teacher. On this morning children can ask questions and begin to tell their new teacher about themselves. This normally takes the form of an activity which can be displayed at the start of the year. Above are some examples.
