The objective to today’s lesson is to remind students about bullying and to draw a distinction between bullying and other kinds of behaviour.

We looked at the definition of bullying, Repeated, deliberate aggrssion by one person or group against others.

We took a closer look at some of these words

Repeated: an action that happens more than once.

Deliberate: an action that is planned, with a specific aim in mind.

Aggression: An action that hurts somebody.

Definitions of Bullying!

Physical Bullying. This is any bullying that hurts someone’s body or damages their possessions. Stealing, shoving, hitting, fighting, and destroying property all are types of physical bullyingPhysical bullying is rarely the first form of bullying that a target will experience

Verbal bullying is a means of using words in a negative way such as insults, teasing, put downs, etc., to gain power over someone else’s life. Many people’s lives have been destroyed by verbal abuse at home, in schools and outside when we socialise.

Psychological bullying: involves the repeated and intentional use of words or actions which can causepsychological harm. Examples include intimidation, manipulation and stalking. 5. Cyber bullying: this is the big one at the moment and is when technology is used to verbally, socially or psychologically bully.

Sexual bullying is a type of bullying and harassment that occurs in connection with a person’s sex, body,sexual orientation or with sexual activity. It can be physical, verbal, or emotional.

Silent treatment (often referred to as the silent treatment) is refusal to communicate verbally with someone who desires the communication. It may range from just sulking to malevolent abusive controlling behaviour.

Day 3

The objective of the lesson is to remind students about their responsibility to report bullying and the ways in which this can be done.

How do you tell? Here are some suggestions.

Write about it in a bullying questionnaire given by your class teacher.

Write a note and hand it to a teacher that you trust.

Write a letter about it and give it to the school secretary who will pass it along to the correct person.

Ask a parent or another adult in your family to phone someone at the school/centre.

Talk to a teacher, resource person or another member of staff about it.

Slip a note under the door of someones office.

Remember! Nothing can be done about bullying until it is reported. Every person has a responsibility to herself or himself and other students to report bullying.

Check out this video called Lets’s Fight It Together. This film, produced by Childnet for the DCSF highlights the different ways that Cyberbullying can happen and the consequences for the target. Watch the video below.
