Anti-Bullying Workshops KS2: 'Speak Up, Stand Tall.'
The students will watch a powerful and engaging performance about a year 6 student named Philip. Along with watching the performance, the students will also get up on their feet and role-play various scenes with Philip. The students will help Philip to make new decisions, and then using drama techniques they will practice and rehearse new behaviours.
The focus of this anti-bullying workshop is to equip students with the skills to deal with bullying situations and to support other primary school students who may be experiencing bullying. This is a high energy, interactive anti-bullying workshop for primary schools, ideal for creating a powerful learning experience for your students in Anti-Bullying Week.
?WHAT IS BULLYING:
We define the different kinds of bullying including verbal, physical & cyberbullying. We look at how this makes others feel and why students bully.
?BEING AN UPSTANDER:
Students learn the difference between a 'bystander' and an 'upstander'. They will practice being an upstander through role-play situations. For example telling a bully to stop and offering support to a victim of bullying.
We will show the students how standing and walking confidently can protect them against being a target for bullying. We practice appropriate use of body language to tell someone to stop.
?PRACTICE LEAVING A BULLYING SITUATION:
The students practice and rehearse what they will do in a bully situation. Confidently saying ‘Leave me alone’ and walking away with their head high and shoulders back.
CONFIDENCE BUILDING AND MENTAL RESILIENCE:
How to feel confident and have a strong mental attitude if someone says unkind things to you.
CYBERBULLYING: STOP, SAVE IT, SHOW IT, SUPPORT:
We define the different kinds of cyber-bullying. We learn strategies what to do if we see or experience cyber-bullying.
THE POWER OF OUR VOICE:
How to use your voice in an assertive and confident way in a bullying situation.
How to ask for help from a teacher in a polite and confident way to make sure we are clearly understood.
