Eagle owls have been exploring the definition of bullying in an attempt to understand the difference between people being rude, people choosing to be mean or people who are actually bullying others. We engaged in role play and discussed lots of different scenarios together as a whole class and later in smaller groups. We wrote our own definitions and talked at length about how we can get help if we feel we are being bullied and how we can support children who are the victims of bullying. 

Here are some of our definitions:

Being rude means you don't think about your actions, for example using bad language. Being mean is when you do mean and nasty things on purpose to hurt someone like name calling but bullying is when mean behaviour happens again and again and again. 

Being a bully is when you target someone and you intend to hurt their feelings and make them miserable and you keep doing it all the time.

A bully constantly does something to hurt someone else with no regard for their feelings. They do it everyday. It could be verbal, social, physical or cyber-bullying.

When people choose to bully others, it might be because of their own issues at home or they might have been bullied themselves so for them, it is normal behaviour. Bullies might need help with their own negative emotions.

A rude person is someone who does something rude like burping in your face or not using their manners but they don't mean to upset anyone, they just don't think about their actions. 

Someone who is mean might do something to hurt you but it is intentional and they do not apologise but being mean is usually a one-off activity. This 'mean' behaviour becomes bullying when it is done repeatedly with malice and no remorse or regret.
