    Let's Say No

    Let's Say No  by Ruth Kenward & Richard Neil - 5 to 7yrs - KS1  (1m 41s)


    Theme  -  Dealing with bullying 

    Story  -  by John & Ruth Kenward (approx 5 mins)

    Billy couldn't wait for playtime. 'Who's playing football?' he would shout on his way to the playground. Lots of children would always run to join him, and within minutes they'd be racing round the football pitch. If you were watching, you'd think everyone was having a great time - but things aren't always as they seem.

    Billy began his school life as a kind and friendly boy, but somehow, by the end of Year 2, he'd become something quite different. He'd turned into Billy the Bully. Since he was very small, Billy had always enjoyed football. The trouble was, as he became bigger and stronger, he started to act as if he was the best footballer in the school. He got into bad habits, deliberately knocking other children over if they got in his way, and being nasty to them if they made mistakes. He was selfish, always wanting to take the goal kicks, the corners, and the throw-ins. No-one dared argue with Billy. They were frightened of getting shouted at, or even hurt.

    In the summer term a new boy, David, joined the class...


    Song  -  by Ruth Kenward & Richard Neil  

    A very simple song to discourage bullying and to teach children some things they can do to feel stronger. (Sample on the audio player above.)


    Reflection Points  -  samples

    1.  In what way was Billy being a bully?

    2.  Was Billy really as tough and strong as he pretended to be?  How do you know?

    3.  Why didn't the other children help Billy when he asked them to?
