We are preparing for our film about anti-bullying.
We painted and decorated words written on cardboard and paper.
These words will be used in our film.
Next week we start filming!
Last night members of AbPhab talked about making a film for anti-bullying week.
AbPhab people from all ages (11 – 30) helped with planning the film.
Anti-bullying week starts on the 17th of November and it finishes on the 21st of November.
Our film will tell people how to stay healthy, happy and safe.
Our friend, Sarah, helped us plan our film. Sarah is an artist. You can see Sarah’s website here: http://frizzlecircle.blogspot.co.uk
We wrote down all our ideas about staying happy and safe.
Chloe said that playing with her cousins made her smile.
Shannon said that talking to friends made her feel happy.
Andre said that reading comics and meditating made him feel good.
We had lots of ideas.
We wrote them all down.
Here is our list of ways that young people can be safe, happy and well.
We all agreed that laughing and having fun is very important.
Our film will carry an important message.
It will say that bullying stops you from feeling happy and safe.
It will say that bullying should be reported.
Many people with a disability don’t report bullying.
They don’t report bullying because it can be hard to fill in a form.
It can be hard to know where to report bullying.
Sometimes people don’t report bullying because they think no-one will take them seriously.
We want to change this.
We want to encourage people with a disability to report bullying.
We want to make reporting easier for everyone.
Hopefully, our film will encourage people to report bullying.
