Our Wall of Respect

On Friday 16th November during our Merit Assembly children from each of the classes (from Nursery to Year 6) shared with the rest of the school some of the activities and work that they had completed during anti-bullying week.

It was lovely to hear what each class has been up to during the week and each class contributed a brick to our Wall of Respect which is displayed in the hall.  Each brick displays a promise / pledge that each class has made to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week.

Well done everyone!

The B-Tales perform!

Tuesday, 13 November 2018

The B-Tales in action!

On Tuesday 13th November we were so excited to welcome the B-Tales back into school to perform their paly all connected to Anti-bullying Week.

The play was based on the story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den and showed us how a boy called Daniel had been bullying by children when he started a new school in Mr Lyons’ class.

The play reminded us of how important it is to tell an adult if others are hurting or upsetting you and how we can all look after each other to make sure we stay safe and happy.

One child comments, “I felt sad when Daniel was being bullied, I wouldn’t want anyone to feel as lonely as he did.”

One pupil enjoying wearing their odd socks!

On Monday 12th November we celebrated the start of Anti-bullying Week by wearing odd socks to school!

Wearing odd socks is a reminder that we may all be unique and different but that we should celebrate our differences and not upset each other because of them.

During the week we have a range of Anti-bullying activities including: watching a play performed by one of our favourite visiting theatre groups The B-tales, class activities looking at the effects of bullying, cyber safety and much more!

Our ambassadors after their presentation!

On 28th June St. Joseph’s The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors attended the second Anti-Bullying workshop, in Halesowen.

 In the morning they took part in activities with other ambassadors from across Dudley and Wolverhampton.

The children also spent time thinking of ways to strengthen the anti-bullying message within schools.

All children had fun and joined in with enthusiasm. Sharing ideas with others and with confidence, the Ambassadors presented what St. Joseph’s Primary School, as a whole, had done in this year’s Ant-Bullying weeks.

The Diana Award Team were extremely impressed with the presentation and work created as a whole school.

Well done children!

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’.

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.”
