Anti bullying Week and Children in Need
“This year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge.
Anti-Bullying Week is no different. Bullying has a long lasting effect on those who experience and witness it. But by channelling our collective power, through shared efforts and shared ambitions, we can reduce bullying together. From parents and carers, to teachers and politicians, to children and young people, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference.
We’re all a piece in the puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.”
All week the children have been taking part in different activities to raise awareness of the importance of being kind to each other. The teachers have been working with the children to reinforce the message that bullying is unacceptable and what our children can do if they feel that they are being bullied.
We started the week with ‘Odd Socks Day’ on Monday and there were some fantastic combinations of odd socks! It really helped to reiterate the important message that we are all unique and that is a great thing.
The children also considered what kind words that they could use with each other to foster feelings of positivity. Together we have created a wall of kind words in the hall. To build on this, our WOW Group led an amazing worship all about One Kind Word which discussed the importance of speaking kindly to each other.
We also had a great day today supporting Children in Need by coming into school wearing fun sports wear. The children really enjoyed their work outs with Jo Wicks! Mrs Chapple led worship where the children learnt about the amazing work that Alder Hey do to support children who need medical care.
Thank you very much for your generous donations – we really appreciate it and our community has made a difference today to the many children and families who need support. The children in our school are always very keen to help other people whenever they can which is lovely to see.
