Sample text

Amira, Priyanka, Nadia and another year 6 girl come up to tell me something about a dance I am helping them put together. While they tell me, they climb on the bench, stand on the back, lean on me, and jump off. Anjali and the year 6 girls start to insult one another. Anjali says something to Priyanka that I don’t hear, and Priyanka says something back in Punjabi. ’ Anjali exclaims. ‘I don’t care if you tell cos I’ll just say you said something first,’ retorts Priyanka. They call each other ‘cow’ and other insults, and it is fairly fraught.

Notes 1. A similar attitude has been noted in some non-Western societies too. For example, Fijians and Luo-speaking Kenyans were reluctant to respond to a child’s complaint about another child (Edwards 1987; Toren 1990). 2. The names of the school, the area and all the people I write about in this book are pseudonyms. 3. The analyses concerning ethnicity included Indian, English and Pakistani children. Those on religion included Christian, Sikh and Muslim children. There were insufficient numbers of other ethnic and religious groups in my sample to include them in the analyses.

These differences in response are probably not all down to stable differences in the children who are on the receiving end of Sohaib’s attacks. There are many other possible factors, including how new the children were to the school, and what else had happened to them on that day. Nevertheless, some children do seem to be more susceptible than others to being hurt by banter and teasing. One such child was Harpreet, an Indian Sikh girl in Sohaib’s class. She was extremely well behaved in the classroom and often praised by her teachers.
