Shoe Sketchings


In art this week, we had a lesson in drawing our shoe! First we focused on drawing the outline shape,  then we added an extra dimension to make it look 3-D and finally we added details such as the laces, stitches and brand name.

Anti-Bullying Week



This week, in SPHE we tackled bullying.  We learned about the different types of bullying (physical, emotional and cyber) and looked at the difference between bullying and conflict (a disagreement).  We watched videos demonstrating the different types of bullying and listened to stories of people who have been bullied.  This helped us to become aware of how the victims of bullying feel.  We looked at the role of the ‘bystander’ and the power the ‘bystander holds in stopping bullying. 

In pairs, we came up with ways to stop bullying and in groups we created ‘freeze frames’  exploring cyber, physical and emotional bullying further.
