Today we investigated a short annimation and discussed the issues that arose from it. There were interesting perspectives given by all. Some children felt that the small birds were showing bullying behaviour towards the larger bird for being different and others felt that both the small birds and the larger bird were unkind at different points. The class came up with words such as bullying, unkind, singled out and retaliation. We also discussed what the outcome may have been if all the birds had given each other space on the wire eg they would all have been happy and felt included and they could have helped each other. Several key stills of the annimation are below:
