The key to being a good friend!

Friday, 8 June 2018

Our keys all hanging up at the front of the hall

On Friday 8th June, following our Anti-Bullying Assembly, Mr Gilbert very kindly found a place in the hall to hang up all of the keys the children creating detailing the ‘Key to being a good friend’.

This display is a reminder of how we can be good friends to each other and look after each other always!

 

Anti-Bullying Assembly

Friday, 8 June 2018

All of our keys to being a good friend!

On Friday 8th June we held a special Anti-Bullying, Anti-Racism and Internet Safety Assembly where each class shared some of the work they had completed during the week in school – more photos can be seen on our special events page!

It was wonderful to hear and see some of the exciting activities the children have been completing about being a good friend, what to do if they or someone they know is being bullying, how to mend a broken heart, how to stay safe online and much more!

We linked our work this week with the virtues we are leaning about this half term – attentive and discerning.

One child commented, “We can be attentive to Jesus as he sets us a good example and discerning in the choices we make being a friend to others.”

At the end of the assembly each class brought forward a set of keys which reminds us of the key to being a good friend!

Well done everyone!

Anti-bulling week – internet safety!

Wednesday, 6 June 2018

Juliet working with some of our Year 6 children.

On Wednesday 6th June during our anti-bullying week Juliet Joy came into school to talk to the children about how to stay safe online whilst still enjoying using the internet.

The children from Year 6 and 5 took part in the workshop which helped them to understand how the digital world is linked to the real world and behaviour online should mirror behaviour off line along with reminding children how to stay safe.

One chid commented, “I feel more confident of how I can keep myself safe when I am playing games online, the session was really helpful.”

Anti-bullying week activities

Wednesday, 6 June 2018

Action!

On Wednesday 6th June the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors were in action again!

They organised various activities to help all the children creatively explore and understand the topic of bullying.

 The activities gave the children an opportunity to stop and think about how we can stop any form of bullying and think more about how we can be as individuals. All the children participated and were able to think about how our school values help us to maintain a bully free school.

One child commented, “If we follow the school values, if everyone does, then our school will always be bully free!”

 

Anti-bullying week – Lunchtime Friendship Club

Wednesday, 6 June 2018

Children together during the lunchtime club

This week it is Anti-Bullying Week at St. Joseph’s.

The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors organised a Lunchtime Friendship Club which gave all the children an opportunity to have their lunch together and also to play different games and created some artwork.

The session promoted friendship groups as different age groups came together and were able to socialise. The children had lots of fun and enjoyed each other’s company.

One child commented, “I really enjoyed getting to know children from other classes, we found we had lots in common!”

Against Cyberbullying!

Our PCSO’s in action!

On Wednesday 9th May the children from Years 5 and 6 took part in an assembly all about the dangers associated with cyberbullying.

The session was lead by our local PCSO’s who talked about online behaviour and what we should do if we ever feel unsafe online.

Anti-Bullying Training

Thursday, 19 April 2018

Our children with the Mayor

On Wednesday 18th April, a group of Year 4 and Year 5 pupils from St Joseph’s were invited to attend a training day, along with pupils from other schools in the Dudley area, to be trained as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. The children had the opportunity to network with other passionate young people where they were able to exchange ideas and share good practice. Children gained a deeper understanding of bullying, the facts and the effects of bullying. They gained basic training looking at the skills needed to support others and stay safe. They now have the knowledge and ability to lead some Anti-Bullying activities in school. Each child was presented with a certificate for their achievement.

The children had a fantastic day leaving them feeling inspired and full of more fantastic ideas. They even got to meet the Mayor of Dudley!
