Anti-bullying week – For the Birds
This year we used Pixar’s animated short “For the birds” to discuss and promote the importance of speaking out about bullying and celebrating everyone being different. As part of raising awareness we held our very own Odd Sock Day where we were “all different but all equal”. The children also learnt a new song “Unique” by Andy and the Odd Socks
The children also created their very own cartoon strips to make others aware of different ways to deal with bullying and how it is unacceptable.
Reflecting back on our Black History Month learning from earlier in the term. The children learnt about how slaves tried to free themselves by discovering the secret of the unground railroad patchwork quilts. After planning and designing their own secret codes, the children created their own patchwork codes which were put together to make their class own freedom quilt.
