Children from Cuddington Croft Primary School spent time looking at
one of the less pleasant aspects but most necessary parts of school life
recently as part of the Anti-Bullying education and awareness week.
Issues around by the topic were incorporated into regular lessons, as well
as specific activities taking place to educate children about the problem,
and teach them ways to manage, deal with and overcome bullying behaviour.
The project was overseen by Miss Martin, who has spent the last year
completing a Personal Health Social and Education course, dealing with many
of the matters addressed during the week.
“It’s a necessary part of a fully rounded education to make the children
aware of the topic of bullying and the effects it can have”, she said.
“We’ve tried to make it as enjoyable as possible, though, rather than
anything too downbeat – for example, Year Two focused on spies and villains,
and how they’re like bullies, so we created our own villain characters and
then made bully-catching devices.”
She continued: “We have a responsibility to get these kind of messages
across to the children, and activities like this are often the best way. At
the end of the week, the work the children had created was on display,
which is good because not only does it show parents what their children have
been doing in class, it also gives them the reassurance that the school is
teaching their children these very necessary lessons.”
