Year 5 workshop by NSPCC

Here are our thoughts from the workshop.


We were talking about the worries that other children have and how they can be solved. These worries may even be worries that our friends have. By calling Child Line they can be solved, because they help. You can also talk to a trusted adult, this could be you parent, teacher, your cub leader. (just not a stranger). We also talked about types of bullying like cyber -this is where people say nasty things about you on the internet. Physical bullying which hurts you on the outside and verbal bullying this can hurt you on the inside. We talked about secrets. When its a good idea to keep a secret (when its a birthday surprise) or when its not a good idea (like if you stole something.)


First we went to assembly then we talked about neglect - when you don't have the best clothes or food, so your parents might not be caring for you, unless they just don't have any money. The next thing was cyber bullying, Anne asked the class for their opinions, we had a great discussion and listened to lots of different opinions. We finally made a chatter box after a while we did discuss where we feel safe, who makes us safe and what makes us safe. We had a great morning.


Today some visitors from the NSPCC came to talk to us about the rights of a child. Did you know that children do have the right to stay safe and speak out? They showed us their mascot, who was called Buddy. Buddy is a speech bubble . It shows us that children have the right to speak. After the assembly they did a workshop with year 5 and 6. They explained the problems that children face more in depth. They showed a video about this boy called Guy, he was neglected, and when he heard about the child Line number he rang

0800 11 11. They gave him lots of help and in the end he had friends and food to eat. Guy was happy.

Here the pictures of our workshop and the thoughts of Year 5.
