The theme of this years Anti Bullying week is ‘Change Starts with Us’.
A small change makes a big difference.
New Key Stage 2 Workshop
We have a new Key Stage 2 workshop specially for this year’s anti-bullying week – “Change Starts With Us”
Our Change Starts With Us workshop will show your pupils how their small changes will make a big difference to tackling bullying.
This workshop will encourage your pupils to step outside their comfort zone and think of others outside their immediate friendship groups. The drama role-play component of this workshop allows the participants to explore – in a safe environment – how to make small changes to make a big difference. The workshop encourages each class to work together to tackle bullying.
Through drama role play your pupils will learn about silent bullying, the role of a bystander and how having the confidence to stand up for yourself can help make a change. We have designed our workshop to remind your pupils that everyday acts including thinking about the impact of our words can have a significant impact in helping to reduce bullying.
At the end of the workshop your students will have practised a small change and understand that each small change will make a big difference to tackle bullying. They will feel more confident about making changes in themselves and have a set of common tools to look out for the wellbeing of others. They will understand that their behavior is a choice and know how to look out for the well-being of others. We provide your teachers with a post workshop lesson plan to carry on teaching the anti-bullying messages and key points from this workshop.
Key Stage 1 – Friendship Workshop – “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”
Our ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’ workshop specifically helps KS1 pupils in understanding how to be a good friend to one another. During the workshop the pupils will watch a simple puppet show which explores the consequences not being a good friend. The puppet show is fun and engaging tool for the children to learn from. During the puppet show the class will get to meet Katrina the Cat, Danny the Dog, Daphne the Duck and Mr Lion. After the puppet show the pupils get the chance to make a change to the story, learning how important is it is to be a good friend to one another. Your pupils will also complete a simple drama exercise to reinforce the friendship message.
