This year, Anti-bullying week was held by many schools between the 16th and 20th November. This year the theme was ‘United Against Bullying

As we all know, the effects of bullying can have a massive impact on children. Therefore dedicating a week to address bullying seemed like a great way to get involved to raise awareness.

In the Early Years, anti-bullying is rather difficult to teach. That’s why we decided to go down the story telling route. Miss B picked a special story to read to all the children. The story was about a boy called Billy who was a bully. Throughout the story he made lots of wrong choices. At the end of the story, Billy learnt not to be a bully and apologised to Lupi for all the wrong choices that he made.

We really enjoyed listening to the story and learnt exactly what bullying meant. We also learnt what not to do to our friends especially when playing with them in the playground.

After listening to the story, we looked closely at… SOCKS! Miss B said that on Monday it was ‘odd sock’ day where children in schools would come in wearing odd socks.

What is Odd Socks day?

Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity to encourage children to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes them all unique!

Therefore Nursery and Reception got involved in designing a pair of odd socks for the occasion. Have a look at our designs. Which odd pair do you want to wear?
