But is it Bullying?
Teaching Positive Relationships To Young Children



November 2004 | 110 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`Although targeted at educators working with young children, this book lends itself to use with older primary pupils and, with some careful attention being paid to the issues of `age appropriateness', to a wide range of children with learning difficulties, including those attending special schools' - SENCO Update

`The guidance is clear, practical and teacher-friendly and encapsulates current best primary practice' - TES Extra for Special Needs

Bullying establishes itself as soon as young children begin to engage in social groups - someone is left out… someone is different… someone gets hurt. If you are eager to intervene early to support children aged 5 - 12 years in forming collaborative and empathic relationships, this is the resource to help you do it!

Using research findings from over 400 children's views, the book looks at:

- name-calling

- teasing

- excluding

- physical aggression

- verbal harm

- taking and breaking

Each lesson plan follows the same format with a poster-related discussion, class and follow-up activities, developmental work, research activity and lesson review. The book comes with a CD-ROM to print out the six posters as well as 48 individual illustrations. You will not be disappointed with the ease with which the author's ideas translate into classroom use!

Margaret Collins is a former headteacher of infant and first schools. She is now Senior Visiting Fellow in the School of Education at the University of Southampton. She researches children's perceptions of health education topics, writes teaching materials for children, books and articles on PSHE.

I delivered a workshop to a charity working with children with learning disabilities. I recommended this book to them as it was accessible and gave simple yet excellent advise.
