During the month of October the children of the Kindergarten Section explored the value of forming, developing and sustaining Friendships.
They participated in a variety of ‘friendship’ activities, learning how to recognise and maintain healthy friendships, all the while developing their personal and social skills.Nursery children made a ‘ Friendship Banner’, a colourful and cheerful reminder that we are all friends in our classroom.The focus in PSHE was on playground friends, the children developed a recipe for friendship and participated in the 5 finger friendship challenge. During R.I., children discussed the importance of friends and wrote three things that they appreciated about their friends. Earlier in Citizenship, children had identified the qualities of a good friend and how they themselves could be better friends.
Celebrating and promoting the value of ‘Friendship’ proved to be a wonderful way to remind the children that life is so much better with good friends by our side.
