This week, we were learning about bullying. The children have learnt about the differences between direct and indirect types of bullying and have begun to offer a range of strategies to help themselves and others. During the session, the children worked in groups to create a 'Snakes and Ladders' game based on a range of bullying scenarios. The children then identified possible reactions to the bullying scenarios - positive responses resulted in a ladder climb and negative responses saw them sliding down a snake!
The children had lots of fun playing the games that they created!
Direct bullying - when bullying is done directly to the person.
Indirect bullying - when bullying is done behind someone's back.
