Year 3 Anti-Bullying Assembly

Y3 CH Anti-Bullying Week Class Assembly 

13 June 2015

1                      Welcome to our class assembly on Anti bullying week.

2                      This week we have understood what bullying is and how we can deal with it. We talked about it as a class and looked at three definitions of bullying:

3                      Bullying is intentional, not an accident, where a bully hurts someone on purpose.

4                      Bullying is repetitive. This means that the bully hurts someone over and over again; it isn’t an incident that happens only once.

5                      In general, bullying is where one person acts like they have more power than another, and does whatever they can to hurt that person.

6                      We have been working so hard that one of our classmates has even got through to a very special edition of ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’!!

 

Chris T:           Hello and welcome to this exciting Anti-Bullying Week edition of the greatest game show on the tv!! (everyone groans).

                        Let’s introduce our contestant for today, he is Drew from Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy! (everybody cheers.

Contestant:      Hi Chris, I’m very excited about this opportunity to win some mo- (Chris interrupts)

Chris T:           Yeah that’s brilliant but everyone is watching because of me so lets get on with my show, I mean, the show! Question 1 for £100: If a person is being bullied, it is… A – Their own fault, B – their parents fault, C – their friends’ fault or D – the bully’s fault?

Contestant:      Well Chris, it reminds me of an incident at school just last month…

ACTING 

Contestant:      So my answer is D – the bully’s fault. No one else is to blame for a bully’s action apart from the bully themselves.

Chris T:           Hmmm, I don’t think we needed all that to answer the question. Anyway, final answer?

Contestant:      Yes Chris, final answer.

Chris T:           And you are…(long pause) going to find out if you’re right, after the break!!!

Contestant:      Chris, have you been taking tips off Mrs Bland again??

Advert actors come off stage; Chris and contestant come back on  

Chris T:           Welcome back to this special edition of blah blah blah, you know the programme with the annoying pauses and drama! Before the break our contestant won £100 for answering that it is a bully’s fault if you are getting bullied.

Contestant:      Hey, you didn’t tell us that.

Chris T:           Well I just have! Question 2 is for £200. Being bullied makes people feel… A – Scared and upset, B – Happy, C – Excited or D – Confident.

Contestant:      Ooo that reminds me of that incident I remembered earlier.

Chris T:           Not again!!

ACTING 

Contestant:      So I will say ‘A’ Chris, when you are bullied you feel scared and upset.

Chris T:           Final answer, actually I don’t care, you’re correct!

Contestant:      Chris you’re being a bit mean?

Chris T:           Nonsense, this is tv! If people don’t like it they can change channels.

Chris T and contestant go off stage,

7                      In class we discussed the different types of bullying to understand what people mean when they say “I am being bullied”.

8                      We also thought of definitions of words we use wHen we describe bullying.

9                      A bully is someone who tries to hurt people by the way they act.

10                    A victim is somebody who is bullied and feels hurt, upset and scared by the actions of a bully.

11                    A bystander is a person who sees bullying taking place and is a very important person involved in stopping the bullying.

12                    Physical Bullying: when a bully kicks, hits and damages someone or their belongings.

13                    This can be easy for a bystander to see but can be painful for the victim.

14                    Verbal Bullying: when a bully is name calling, taunting, threatening and making offensive remarks to another person or group of people.

15                    This can be very common and is hard to deal with if an adult doesn’t know.

16                    Indirect Bullying : when a bully doesn’t bully the victim to their face, for example; spreading nasty stories about someone, gossiping and excluding people from games.

17                    This has to happen all the time to be bullying and is dealt with by victims and bystanders telling an adult.

18                    Cyber Bullying: when a bully is sending nasty emails, texts or making nasty phone calls to the victim.

19                    This is becoming more common nowadays, where victims should record the messages to prove what has been happening.

20                    All these types of bullying are very serious and can cause lots of damage to the people involved.

21:                   In ICT we have made Scratch animations to show what bullying might look like, we would like you to have a look.
