Example: Story written by a primary school pupil
Once upon a time, there was a little girl called Sam and she was new to her school. She was friends with all the popular girls, until suddenly, she saw a football outside.
She said, “Do you want to play footy?” to the popular girls
“Ewww, no. That’s a boys game, you weirdo” the popular girls said “Why do you even like that?”
Sam began to feel sad and worried.
She wanted to tell someone but she was worried it would make it worse. She kept feeling mixed emotions because they kept following her around and calling her mean names.
So then she classed it as bullying because they were doing it constantly. She wanted to tell someone, but she was afraid that if she did, it would change from verbal bullying to physical bullying.
Sam sat down at lunch, on her own, then another girl who was sat on her own came over.
She said “Hello, do you want to be friends?”
Sam said “Yes, but I’ll warn you…I’m a bit of a tomboy”
“That’s OK, me too”
