  • After viewing:
  • In small groups students discuss their responses to the first four key questions building on the discussion held before viewing and exploring what further information this episode provides and exploring the next two questions. Have their views changed? If so why? Is violence ever acceptable?
  • They could view Riley's monologue: 'Thicker than water' and return to discussions about bullies and victims. They could consider the last key question planning ways of preventing bullying in the school or community.
