Anti-Bullying Week 2019

Last week was Anti-Bullying Week. Have a look at what each class got up to!


Reception explored the theme of odd socks linked to ‘Odd Sock Day’. They designed their own odd socks and then celebrated how they were all different.

Following our whole school assembly looking at how change starts with us, Reception were passing on compliments to each other and spotting children who were helping each other out.

We talked as school about how we can help bring people up rather than bringing people down. We linked this to our work on wellbeing and how we all impact on each other so its important to consider how we treat others.

Year 1 & 2

Year 1 and 2 at East Hoathly discussed what we can do to make a change to reducing bullying in our school. One theme that the children came up with was being a good friend. We then read the story ‘Little Beauty’ by Anthony Browne and discussed how each of the characters felt when they were not being a good friend. The children then came up with ways they could be a good friend, in the playground and in the classroom.

Year 3 & 4

During Anti-Bullying Week, Year 3 and 4 class worked very hard on a number of learning activities, around the theme of “Change Starts with Us”.

In order for the children to understand different forms of bullying and how bullying impacts others, the first activity was to create a poster that celebrates the idea of difference.

The class also produced some storyboards, and we also discussed some key features of ‘difference’ and how we should all celebrate our own unique characteristics.

Year 5 & 6

Year 5 and 6 took part in a range of activities for Anti-Bullying Week and they particularly enjoyed designing odd socks for Odd Sock Day.

The children really understood the theme: ‘Change Starts with Us’ and one child said “Change starts with us means that we can help prevent bullying by telling a trusted adult or simply just being friendly and saying that someone can play or talk with you.”
