One of the things we have been discussing in Year 4 Pshe this term is peer pressure and how we can find the confidence to say no to people who are pressuring us to change and/or do things that we know are wrong just so they like us!
We wrote acrostic poems about Peer Pressure and thought we would share some:
Peer pressure always making me sad
Everybody making me want to change
Even when i know it's wrong
Really want to just say no!
People changing who I am
Really good if you have friends, in this situation.
Eight year olds always telling me what to do
Surely they know what they are doing is silly
Strangely the people who i thought were my friends
Unfortunately under a lot of peer pressure
Really sad and angry
Especially when i have no friends to tell
Please dont peer pressure others
Everyone deserves to be unique
Everyone is different
Really try to keep it that way
People should be kind
Really have confidence
Every person should be respected
Sat to the adults
Stop and think
Unkind words are bad
Really try to think this
Everything is ok!
