19th November 2021
The week beginning 15th November was National Anti-bullying week and this year’s theme was one kind word. We celebrated in school by inviting Divergent Drama into school for the day; they performed a show for each key stage, linking anti-bullying and kindness messages to well-known children’s stories. They also ran a drama workshop with each class to develop these messages at an age appropriate level. On the Friday of anti-bullying week we all wore odd socks to school – odd sock day is an annual part of anti-bullying week; children are asked to wear odd socks to encourage them to express themselves and to symbolise that we are all different. The message throughout the week is to accepting of one another and celebrate individual differences!
As part of anti-bullying week also had a school art completion; each class was given a large canvas and asked to work together as a team to create a picture on the theme of kindness. Their creations were beautiful and you can see photos of them on the News tab of the school website. The winning class was Red Class (our youngest children in school!) and they won a chocolate cake to share.
