Introduction

I like working with different children like you …(insert partner’s name).
Icebreaker: The thing I would miss most if I was on a desert island would be …………

Activity

Think of the word bully.
With your partner try and think of a few words that could finish off this sentence: ‘A bully is someone who……….’
The children will find this quite difficult unless the school has already clearly defined ‘a bully’.
A helpful definition is: ‘A bully is someone who does unkind things to another person several times on purpose’.

Processing

What are some of the unkind things a bully might do to others?

Conclusion

I’m glad you were really kind to me today …(insert partner’s name).

Extension activity: Bystander
With your partner draw a scene on a piece of paper.
You will need four people (stick people will do) in your scene and they are all involved in a bullying situation. Share the task between you.
One is the bully, one is the victim, and another is a bystander.
Label them all in some way and think about what each one would be saying. You could make some speech bubbles for each one.
It will be fairly easy to think of what the victim and the bully will say but what will / should the bystander be saying or doing?
