Reception Class -
YEAR 3 -
We have had a wonderful week thinking about friendship and how we can make our lives happy and contented. We made a poster together, joining our ideas through PSHE and RE
YEAR 5 -
1) We created a class 'friendship chain' - each pupil picked a name from a hat and wrote a positive message for that person on a strip of card. Then we assembled the messages to form a friendship chain.
2) We looked at the qualities needed for a good friendship and then wrote recipes for the perfect friendship in creative writing.
3) We looked at the impact of different types of bullying and how we as a school can work together to make sure bullying does not happen.
YEAR 6 - During Anti-Bullying/Friendship week, we have spoken about what a good friend looks like in small groups and shared some ideas on how we could show that we care for each other in the classroom. The children have created a jigsaw puzzle each detailing their aim to unite with each other to put a stop to bullying. This activity was created after looking at different scenarios and discussing what our role would be in combatting any bullying issue
