We have been talking about “Bullying” in grades 4 and 5 for the past few weeks during PSE.
After discussions and watching the video “Let’s fight it together”, students came up with questions such as:
Why do bullies bully?
Why do bullies smile and look happy when they are hurting people?
Don’t bullies feel bad?
How do bullies pick who to bully?
How do bullies make a “bully group”?
Why don’t people getting bullied ask for help right away?
We discussed what each of us can do if we are teased/ bullied or if we see someone being teased/ bullied. Some ideas were:
“Tell the bully to stop”; “Ignore”; “Get a group of friends and stop the bully”; “Tell the teacher”;”Tell your parents”; “Ask the bully how he/she would feel if someone did the same thing to him/her” and “Walk away”.
Welcome back to school!!! I hope everyone is having a great start to the new school year. I will be coming to all classes for Personal Social Education (PSE) soon. As usual, everyone is welcome to come and see me at anytime!Filed under Bullying | Comment (0)
Gr 4 students had questions about safety at YIS. There were many questions about what to do when there is an earthquake. If there is an earthquake, the teachers will tell you exactly what to do but remember to get under the table if you are in the classroom.Filed under Grade 2, Grade 4, News | Comment (0)
Today, we welcomed Gr 1 and Gr 3 students at our new students dessert gathering during lunch recess. It was great to hear positive comments about YIS. When students were asked what they liked about YIS. Ben from Gr 3 said that “YIS is full of happiness”. Others said that YIS students are friendly and made new students feel welcomed.
Our student council members also joined the gathering. If you have any questions about YIS or ideas to make our school a better please, please talk to the student council members or myself.Filed under Grade 1, Grade 3, News | Comment (0)
