Leanne’s Year 6 class recently presented a powerful assembly to coincide with Anti-Bullying Week. The main message was that we are all different, but we are all equal.
The assembly started with the students explaining what their unique skills are. The question was posed: what would it be like of we were all the same?
This then led to the Michael Faraday Golden Rule: Treat other people how you want to be treated.
Some questions were then asked to the audience members. Year 6 asked about the different types of bullying that exist. We then asked our friends how we can stop bullying. An important idea here was to tell someone who we can trust.
Cyber-bullying was also discussed. Some of the audience members were able to explain how social media sites have a report button.
Year 6 finished their assembly with each class member sharing some facts about themselves which makes them feel proud. Examples included:
“I enjoy revision.
I like the colour pink.
I like listening to untrendy music.”
Some anti-bullying shields were shown at the end of our assembly. Once again these were all different and reflected our personalities.
