This month, we will be exploring the value of Friendship which we hope will help the children to develop their personal and social skills. Forming, developing and sustaining friendships is an important part of a child’s life and the purpose of our friendship month is to enable pupils to practise these skills and foster positive relationships within the classroom setting.
As part of their home learning, we would like the children to think about what they can do to be a good friend. Please could you support us by talking to your child about their ideas and encourage them to think about things they could say or do. Many children may suggest giving their friend a present and whilst this is a lovely gesture, we would like to encourage them to do something that costs nothing!
