We’re talking about Peer Pressure, are you?

Patcham Juniors have been discussing a pretty important topic this week. They have been talking about peer pressure. Peer pressure is influence on a peer group, observers, or an individual that encourages others to change their way of thinking, their values, or behaviours to follow or copy those of the influencing group or individual. Sometimes, this means a peer group might want you to do or say something that you feel uncomfortable doing and it makes you think what is the right thing to do. Have you ever encountered this problem?

Class 3NS found a really good way of approaching the subject, by making use of all the nice weather (not today mind!) by doing a drama class outside and using role play to see what they would do! How cool is that?!
