Today we used our drama time to practise some techniques that could be used to deal with bullies. We learned about the “broken record” and “fogging” methods. In groups of three we used role play to try these out. We thought the techniques worked really well in our role play scenarios.

During the week we had also discussed the importance of having good friends and what makes a good friend, especially after having watched the video “Whose side are you on?” on CBBC earlier in the week.
We all made friends for Flat Stanley so he had someone to look after him in the classroom when we are not there. We also wrote speech bubbles about ways in which we could be a good friend.
This week is national anti bullying week. The whole school is taking part in a variety of activities to do with this.
Today we discussed the different forms that bullying can take. We also looked at some scenarios where Flat Stanley might feel he was being bullied and gave him some advice to cope with this. We thought it was really important that any child being bullied should discuss it with an adult they trust.
We have been learning to use the problem solving strategy “Find all Combinations.” Today we had to try to find different combinations of a selection of foods, with varying prices, which would add up to 20p.
We are learning that reading the problem and working out the important information is very important.
