Anti Bullying and Interfaith week

Posted on: 26 Nov 2020 by Weston Green School

Anti Bullying and Interfaith week

During Anti-bullying and Interfaith Week last week, the children had the opportunity to reflect on the behaviours linked to bullying and how to bring people with different beliefs closer together to build positive relationships.  Our assembly focused on the benefits diversity brings and what makes us all unique and special.  Supporting this we drew particular attention to our school values which underpin our school ethos of kindness and respect. 

The week began with Odd Sock Day, with the children and staff wearing odd socks to represent that we are all unique individuals and that this should be celebrated!

Across the whole school the children have been creating mandala style artwork to create a wonderful piece of art based around circles, representing the unity of the children at Weston Green, as we stand United Against Bullying. Look out for the unveiling of this finished piece of art across social media in the coming weeks!

In Early Years and KS1 then children created sock bunting, with images to represent their own personal passions and interests and lives. In KS2 the children reflected on what it means to stand United Against Bullying and distilled this into powerful slogans and images.

All the children deepened their understanding of the various religions and faiths that people hold dear, reflecting on what these beliefs mean through enlightening activities in our library. The most well known Hindu Diwali festival was also celebrated around the world last week and, at WGS, we marked this wonderfully joyous occasion! Early Years children had a blast dressed up in bright colourful hip scarves as they learnt some basic actions (picking apples and throwing frisbees!) in a fun and practical way. We transformed Y5’s French lessons into a dancing session and had Madame Harmer bouncing her hips away and Y6’s danced their hearts out in the science lab! This was the perfect opportunity to have fun and remember all the wonderful things diversity brings to our lives.
