Anti-bullying week is an annual event that takes place in November. Encourage pupils in KS2 to develop positive relationships with friends, spreading kindness to each other, using these resources.
The resource pack includes discussion cards to help pupils identify whether different situations show kindness or bullying behaviour. Pupils can then spend time thinking about examples of when people have been kind to them and how they have shown kindness to others, thinking about how these made them feel.
The resource could be used during Anti Bullying Week or on World Kindness Day in November, or at any time in the school year.
The resources will:
- Give pupils the opportunity to discuss issues, sharing their ideas
- Teach pupils to recognise positive and negative behaviours
- Understand how their actions can affect themselves and others
This pack includes:
- Behaviour discussion cards
- Spreading kindness PDF worksheet
- Teacher’s notes providing guidance on how to use the resource with additional activities also suggested
