Anti-Bullying: Design a Pair of Odd Socks for Anti-Bullying Week FREE Activity
We recommend setting a set of class ground rules and keeping the discussion boundaried, whilst also allowing the children to ask questions when appropriate. These resources encourage children to think about the effects of bullying on not only themselves but also others. The aim is to foster a community of respect, understanding and empathy towards others inside and beyond the classroom.
How could this resource be used?
- To support with building an anti-bullying culture within school.
