Anti-Bullying: Kindness in the Playground Thought Bubbles

Kindness in the Playground Thought Bubble Activity for Children by Exciting Teacher

These Anti-Bullying resources are a great way to open up open and frank discussions with your class surrounding the topic of bullying

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.
