Here at OpenView Education we have been busy creating our new Anti Bullying Workshops and Anti Bullying Shows for Primary Schools.
This year the theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2019 is Change Starts With Us. Our new Anti Bullying show is entitled ‘The Power Of Change’. The show is about how making small, positive changes can have a significant positive impact.
In our new anti-bullying show we have really tailored the content to support the Anti-Bullying Week theme for 2019. It’s an entertaining and engaging performance, suitable for the entire school. It makes use of puppetry, original animations and audience participation.
As well as being an enjoyable day for the whole school, the content, and the story of the performance is underpinned by proven approaches to reducing bullying.
For example, we promote a restorative approach to dealing with bullying situations. We also look at the group dynamics of bullying situations, and explore how we can respond to peer pressure.
Some of the key messages in ‘The Power Of Change’ Anti-Bullying Show are:
What bullying is, and understanding a ‘power imbalance’.
How small changes that we make can have a big positive difference.
We have the power to stop bullying for ourselves and for others.
How to stand up to peer pressure.
Learning how to use confident body language.
Learning to use our voice in an assertive and confident way.
Standing up for ourselves if we are victimised.
Students learn these messages as they watch the performance and by coming up on the stage to take part in activities.
We will be visiting thousands of students throughout November for Anti-Bullying Week 2019 with this Anti Bullying Show and our Anti Bullying Workshops especially created for primary schools.
