Celebrate with Kidscape this Friendship Friday and Anti-Bullying Week
Kidscape's Friendship Friday and Anti-Bullying Week Pack for Primary Schools includes all the information you need for a successful event, including classroom activities and a fundraising pack. This resource is particularly aimed towards children in Key Stage 1 to introduce them to the theme of respect.
The importance of friendship
Friendship Friday celebrates the importance of friendship while raising vital funds for Kidscape. It’s an interactive and fun way to promote friendship, anti-bullying and inclusive behaviour in schools, companies, organisations, communities and with your own friends and family.
Why not host a Friendship Friday event as a build up to Anti-Bullying Week, which is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, and make the focus of your celebrations all about friendship, respect and thinking about others?
Take part by ‘Dressing for yourself’
Hold a non-uniform (or ‘dress down’) day and encourage your students and staff to Dress for themselves! Pay £1 to wear something that celebrates who you are - a bright t-shirt, colourful socks, a big hat. Why follow the trend when you can stand out just by being you?
Celebrate with food for friendship
A celebration is rarely complete without food, so why not get together with your friends and family to enjoy some comforting food this Friendship Friday?
Cooking with loved ones brings us together as we share our stories, our heritage, whilst nourishing our bodies. Sharing a meal with those you love is one of those binding things that does not discriminate regardless of religion, sex, gender or race, no matter where in the world you live. Food is also a great way to share cultures or even secret family recipes!
Download our resource and fundraising pack for more details on how you can come together this Friendship Friday to raise funds for Kidscape while celebrating something that binds us all - food!
