This week we have had lots of circle times and lessons focusing on choosing respect for Anti-Bullying week.
After discussing and understanding what bullying is we focused on how showing and giving respect can possibly prevent bullying.
For check in today the Puffins shared something that made them happy and something that made them sad by drawing a picture and sharing with their teachers and talk partners. Lots of the children enjoyed fireworks which made them happy. Lots of children said they were sad because they missed their friends.
Today the Puffins have had a big discussion about how we can stand-up for themselves and what they belief in. In groups they acted out different scenarios they would face if they had to stand up for themselves.
‘We could just say that’s your opinion to the other person’ Ryan
‘We could walk away and not say anything back’ Millie
Following this we decided on the best way to calm down if we got upset or angry.
‘We could think of something different’ Dehwa
‘We could go somewhere quiet to calm down’ Paige
We finished the lesson with learning some calming breathing techniques and gentle yoga.
