National Anti-Bullying Week - November 2016
As part of this year’s National Anti-Bullying campaign, the children of Branscombe CE Primary School considered how they and those around them could use their “Power for Good” to stop bullying from happening. The children considered different types of bullying and the impact these can have and they thought about the roles of teachers, parents, children and others in preventing bullying from happening. The children of Class 1 then made posters about these different types of bullying, with the message to “Stop Bullying” and the children of Class 2 worked in pairs or groups to create a comic-style storyboard about different bullying scenarios and how people might use their power for good to stop these from happening or bring an end to bullying.
Safer Internet Day 2017
Class 2 celebrated Safer Internet Day 2017 by completing a range of activities around the theme of "The Power of Image". The children discussed the first impressions they might get of someone from a picture. They looked at different images to recognise how seeing part of a picture can distort our view of what is happening. They explored a range of images to discuss which were real and which were fake and noticed that it can sometimes be quite hard to tell when images have been altered. They looked at images and talked about how sometimes these can give people personal information about the subject. They discussed the importance of seeking permission before taking photographs of people and checking how these can be used and also the importance of being careful with images of themselves. Finally, the children were challenged to consider images that they might post online to represent themselves, without giving away any personal information that may not be safe.
