Anti Bullying Class Play or Assembly
Michael Jackson's You Are Not Alone is used as its title and final song.
Some useful tips on looking out for others - and yourself.
This class play identifies different types of bullying and suggests strategies for both prevention and dealing with the problem when it arises. It looks at the problem of bullying from 2 perspectives - that of the ‘bully' and the ‘bullied', examining why bullies behave as they do and what it feels like to be on the receiving end. The most important message is that we are all special, that we should like ourselves the way we are, and that if we ever find ourselves being bullied, we should get help/talk to someone - never bottle it up inside and ‘put up' with it.
I wrote this at a time when my own daughter (then 9) was being bullied. I learnt many lessons from the experience which I would like to pass onto others.
This script comes in two versions - First one being longer at around 15 minutes (not including music suggestions); second one shorter at just under 10 minutes. I have identified the text that has been left in and taken out from versions I and II respectively. This gives you as a teacher the choice of what length play you wish to use.
Another resource for use within the classroom is a script in the Bible Stories section of the website on David and Goliath - cast of 10 and with discussion pointers on bullying at the end.
Sample Text:
Child 19: You have to believe in yourself. And be your own best friend!
(Child 21: Lollipop lady walks to centre of stage - lifts STOP sign each time it's spoken)
Narrator: What are you doing here? I can't see any traffic?
Lollipop Lady: No, but there are lots of things that need to stop, apart from cars. We're here to tell you about the things we should stop doing!
Child 1:
STOP feeling everything that goes wrong is your fault! It isn't!
Child 2:
STOP thinking you have to be perfect at everything! It's not possible - you're not superman!
Child 3:
STOP letting what you can't do get in the way of what you can do!
Child 4:
STOP trying to be everybody’s friend. You can be liked by some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time!
Child 5:
STOP jumping to conclusions. If someone doesn’t say Hi to you, don’t think ‘Hey! They’re ignoring me. They don’t like me anymore!’ They might not have seen you. Don’t assume the worst!
Child 6:
Stop labelling yourself. Feeling sad one day doesn’t make you a wimp!
Child 7:
Getting your sums wrong another day doesn’t make you a loser!
Child 8:
Having a spot on your nose one day doesn’t make you ugly!
Child 9:
Having an extra chocolate bar doesn’t make you wicked!
Child 10:
Stop telling yourself you should be this, and you shouldn’t be that.
Child 11:
Just be yourself!
Child 12:
Stop worrying about what others might be thinking.
Child 13:
Stop thinking others are always right.
Child 14:
Stop trying to please others all the time.
Child 15:
Stop always putting others before yourself.
Narrator (strides across and snatches STOP lollipop stick from Lollipop Lady):
Stop! Say that last one again?
Child 15:
Stop always putting others before yourself.
But that’s what we’re taught to do. Always think of others first!
Child 16:
Think of others, yes. But don’t forget you’re important too! You have rights. Nobody should be bullied.
Hmm. Maybe we need to look at what we should do!
(Lollipop lady swivels STOP sign round, to show other side with GO on it)
Stand tall! Set an example to others.
