As part of Anti Bullying Week, in our online safety lesson we were looking at our online reputation and the things that we should share online and the things that we shouldn’t. We discussed different things that could be shared and decided that anything that was our own personal information shouldn’t be shared with others.
We have continued to contribute towards Anti-Bullying Week.
This morning in check-in, Bluebirds in year 3 shared their ideas about what is wrong with being a bystander.
Daisy W – you are just as bad as the bully
Sammy – you might lose friends
Eason – you are not helping the person being bullied
Imogen – someone could get hurt
Maya – someone’s feelings could get hurt
Daisy G – it start happening to you
Amelie – if you don’t help, it could carry on
Andrew – I would give the bully the chance to stop
Dora – I would help the person being bullied be strong
Liam – you should always help your friends
Krista – stick up for your friend and tell a teacher
Maarya – don’t let bullying happen
William – you must support your friends
Zi yan – if you are a bystander, you are just as bad as the bully
We discussed how we could help stop any bullying we see, we could tell a trusted adult to get involved and help us. In the Bluebirds class, we are one big team and we are united against bullying!
Our check-in this morning in year 3 was how we can play our part to stop bullying. We wrote our ideas down when we came in, in the morning and then shared them during check-in. We discussed what was meant by respect, how to treat others how we would like to be treated. We also talked about what it was meant by being a bystander and what we could do in order not to be a bystander and be kind and supportive to others.
Andrew gave us some excellent advice and said that if you are being bullied, tell a trusted adult, like a teacher, a parent or carer.
Daisy C said “if we come together, we can stop bullying!”
On Friday, the year 3 Bluebirds made anti-bullying badges ready for Anti-Bullying Week, we will be wearing our badges all week!
Today, we are showing our support by joining in with odd socks day and our morning activity was to define what bullying meant.
During our check in we shared what we thought bullying was.
Liam – when people are very mean to others over and over.
Krista – bullying can be physical, like pushing someone else.
Maarya – bullying is being mean to others and not showing tolerance to people that are different to yourself.
William – when someone else is mean to you more than once.
Daisy B – bullying is when someone doesn’t respect you.
Imogen – bullying is when someone hurts your feelings over and over again.
Zi yan – when someone hurts you several times on purpose, like tripping you up or calling you names.
George – bulling is saying nasty things about you and not including you.
Max – bullying is someone forcing you to do something you don’t want to do.
We discussed where bullying could happen, for example, in school, on the playground, at the shops, at someone’s house, on your phone, computer, or tablet.
We discussed who to tell if we felt we were being bullied, for example, an adult at home, an adult at school, a family member or a trusted adult.
Well done year 3 for engaging in a great discussion on our gifts and talents. You truly are a talented class!
We have a class full of children who can do extraordinary things like trampolining, karate, backflips, dancing, singing, speaking a different language and origami! It was lovely to share all these great gifts and talents.
Some of these gifts and talents were not new news but it was lovely to share that lots of the children and myself speak different languages! Hopefully over the course of the year we can share lots more of these gifts and talents. They certainly made us all smile.
Well done year 3.
In PSHE this week, we discussed our feelings. Bluebirds thought about different types of feelings and what can make us feel that way. On the interactive white board, we looked at different pictures and images and talked about how they made us feel or what emotion they were representing.
We decided a beach was relaxing and calm, a thunderstorm was scared or maybe angry and a tree in the wind might represent being sad.
We drew our own pictures to represent different emotions and feelings, have a look and see if you can guess which one they are!
Bluebirds had some great discussions today as we discussed rules. The children were great at sharing ideas and had lots to share.
When asked about why we have rules, we had some great responses:
Millie – To keep us safe.
Krista – To keep people from doing things wrong.
Alexie – In case of a fire.
Eason – We have rules so bad stuff doesn’t happen.
The whole class were adamant that rules were needed and necessary. Well done- yes, they are and without them you knew there would be chaos and it could get dangerous.
We then looked at building a class charter, which have responsibilities that we all try to abide by to ensure that our classroom is a safe, healthy and welcoming environment in which we can all learn and grow. We all have the right to all of these things and we all have a responsibility to ensure everyone can have them too.
Have a look at our class charter.
Mrs Parry had a letter left on her desk which said, I have been unable to do my work properly because:
► It was too hard.
► It was boring.
► Other children distracted me.
► I don’t enjoy this subject.
Bluebirds talked about excuses being barriers and thought of other examples such as I’m no good at PE, I’m too busy to do a club, We haven’t got enough space to go outside, I don’t like any vegetables etc). We talked about which barriers we are able to change ourselves, in order to reach goals and aims. Ava reminded the class to remember to have a growth mindset attitude of, “I can’t do it YET!”. Mrs Parry reminded the class of the “Change Your Mindset” display and we read through the ways of how to face a difficulty in a positive way.
