Anti-Bullying Week in Year 2

Year 2 completed lots of activities as part of our Anti-Bullying week. We began by watching the Disney Pixar film ‘For the Birds’ and discussed how the characters were behaving. We discussed the exact meaning of bullying. We then designed our own birds for the film, emphasising how it’s ok to be different and how we should respect everybody. We then set up a class kindness tree, to encourage and celebrate acts of kindness. Finally, we read and discussed the story ‘I Won’t Be Made To Feel Bad’, which taught us ways to stand up for ourselves and our friends if we ever witness bullying, and other ways that we can put a stop to bullying.

Let’s be Friends!

nursery and Reception have begun their week thinking about friendship! We read ‘Hugless Douglas’ by David Melling, and realised that we can all be good friends!

The session began with the children creating a handprint poster, showing of their ‘Helping Hands’, they made some beautiful heart toast with a friend. There is more to come later today with friendship bracelets, and making a mobile.

Year 2 have really enjoyed learning about lines of symmetry. The children then worked outside to apply their knowledge and skills by creating symmetrical butterflies using natural materials. The children could explain how to make their art work symmetrical, looking at position, colour and shape.
