We will develop respect for differences and know that bullying is wrong. Talk about ways in which we are different and the same. Begin to understand that the people I know are all different and that these differences should be celebrated and know what to do if I see discrimination. We will talk about special people in our lives and identify how people show each other they care. We will become aware of appropriate touch and understand what ‘no’ and ‘stop’ mean. Identify who to tell if I am worried that the rules about respecting people’s bodies have been broken. We will also be reading lots of different books to explore these themes further.
We looked at different scenarios when people might feel uncomfortable. We acted out some of the scenarios and discussed as a group how we would solve the issues that came up.
At the park, the children are all climbing a big tree. One child doesn't feel comfortable being up high, but the other children are all telling her to do it.
A group of mums are meeting up with their children. One of the mums loves to hug and kiss all the children when she greets them but one of the children doesn't like her doing this.
We made our own scenario books.
