#AntiBullyingWeek and #OddSocks

What is it?

Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! https://www.andyandtheoddsocks.com/ It was an opportunity for our children to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique! The wearing of odd socks has marked the start of our anti-bullying week.  Here are some images of the community in their odd socks, enjoying themselves and being proud of who they are:

Our children said:

Myla (3KB) – odd socks reminds us to treat people how you want to be treated. Odd socks are different but they are still the same because they are still socks. People can look different but we are all still the same too.
Rosa (3KB) – we are wearing odd socks because it is anti-bullying week
Anais (3KB) – it doesn’t matter if people are different, you still treat people the same.
Charlie (3KB) – some socks are older or longer than others but that doesn’t matter because just like people, it is okay to be different.
Albie (6ST) – just because we are different, it doesn’t mean we are bad.
Lucus (6ST) – we are not all the same. This is good.
Connie (6ST) – we are all unique in our own way.
Charlotte (6ST) – it is good to be different.
Jack (6ST) – it is okay to be unique.
Lucy (4AB) – we are wearing odd socks to show we are unique.
Jessica (3LW) – our socks are different but they are still a sock.
Anastacia (3LW) – we are all different but special in our own way.
Archie (3LW) – we don’t expect bulling because of being different.
Toby (3LW) – it shows we all have our differences.
Nathan (4VW) – you need to remember that if people are different you should treat them as you would want to be treated.

The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2018 is: ‘Choose Respect’ and Anti-Bullying Week runs from 12th – 16th  November.  Everyday, we will have a different foci in class. Some of our Y6 children are choreographing a dance routine, with thanks to Chris Todd from Synchronize Dance School. They will showcase their work on Thursday to the whole school and their attached adults are welcome to attend (they will have received a text).
