This week is national anti-bullying week. We had lots of discussion around what bullying is and came up with our own definition. We also talked about STOP:
We we looked at different scenarios and decided whether they were bullying, conflict or neither. The children then did freeze frames of different scenarios and discussed the feelings of the bully and the victim.
We were very lucky to have Mr Egypt in school today to launch our Ancient Egyptian topic. We started our day with the Geography of Egypt and learnt that people settled along the river banks of the Nile (the longest river in the world). We also handled 2 amulets that are over 3,000 years old!
We we looked at Bedouins and how they still live like the Ancient Egyptians: they cook their bread for breakfasts in exactly the same way and once the sun goes down, they dance and sing to ward off evil spirits.
We we couldn’t believe that children started work at 5 (if they were boys) and girls then started to learn the jobs of the home. They didn’t wear clothes until they were 5! Children were brought up to be well behaved and quiet. They played games like draughts and snakes and ladders, similar to us today. They also had dolls.
