Bullying is a recurrent theme in PSHE lessons. In this quiz, written for KS2 aged children in years 3-7, we help them differentiate between cyber bullying and playground bullying. It will also help them to understand what to do if they suspect they or anyone they know is being cyber bullied.
There are many types of bullying. Cyber bullying is bullying that takes place online. Due to the nature of cyber bullying, some people do not realise they are being a bully or are being bullied - but if the behaviour online is repeatedly done with the desire to cause emotional distress to another person then it is still bullying.
Cyber bullying is just as serious as any other kind and it must be stopped. It is important to understand that by liking cruel comments or sharing mean videos online, you are contributing to the bullying even if you did not post it in the first place.
