In PSHE this week, year 1 have been discussing what they are successful at.
We started our lesson with Jigsaw Jack. We passed him around our circle carefully and quietly. We had to work together as a class to achieve this goal.
We talked about goals we have achieved. Lots of children in year 1 did not think we had achieved any goals until we talked about the skills we now have that we didn’t have before.
Lots of children in Year 1 can tie their shoes, fasten their coats or even ride a bike.
We took it in turns to tell the class about the achievements we are proud of.
Year 6 really had some really thoughtful discussions in their learning about respectful relationships this afternoon. There were thought provoking discussions that helped them learn a lot about how to show respect and what good relationships look like. Also how relationships evolve overtime.
In our PSHE lesson today, we looked at bullying and discussed how our words and actions can hurt others. We discussed bullying and the different types of bullying i.e. sexism, racism, homophobia, rumour spreading, cyber-bullying, name calling and verbal and physical bullying.
We discussed ways in how we can deal with bullying to make the situation better. For example, telling an adult, blocking the person if the bullying is occurring online and not retaliating. We also discussed ways in which a bullying situation could be made worse. For example joining in with bullying or not telling an adult if you witness a bullying incident.
Finally, we talked about the differences between direct and indirect bullying and examples of both types.
The children then worked in groups to come up with their own bullying scenario and then six ways to help solve the scenario and six ways that the situation could be made worse. With their scenario and reasons, the children created their own snakes and ladders game.
We finished our lessons on bullying by playing our games.
As part of our White Ribbon Day Activity Year 6 Have created a graffiti wall of positivity. Each child wrote a thought on the wall, which challenge misconceptions. The children’s thoughts are clear; each one sending a positive message to all who read them.
If we immerse ourselves in diverse culture, we get opportunities to interact and mingle with people from different background and learn from one another. We can build trust, love, respect and understanding across cultures thereby wiping out all the negative stereotypes and personal biases about different groups.
Well done Year 6 , a great way to get the message across!!!
In Y4, the children have been working collaboratively to identify the qualities which they believe are necessary to form and maintain positive relationships.
Honesty and dependability
Trust, rules and communication
Respect and reliability
Acceptance and care
Love and happiness
Kindness and listening to each other
As you can see, we shared our opinions and agreed that many qualities are required to ensure that relationships between friends, parents, carers, teachers and people in our wider community not only work but remain positive.
We then proudly signed our pledge to ensure that only kind words, kind thoughts and kind actions are used towards one another in all the relationships we are a part of now and in the future.
