Use this free resource to develop your childrens’ spoken language skills by highlighting a topic they will have been hearing about this week.
‘Some people suggest it is best to give in and do what the bully wants. But that won’t stop the bullying. You shouldn’t just put up with it. You should always report bullying.’
‘Bullies often say that their victims deserve to be bullied. But no one deserves to be bullied.’
After reading some thoughts like these about bullying the children are presented with 10 statements to make them think about the article more deeply. They are then encouraged to discuss their own views on the statements.
