Y3B – What makes a good friend?

This week is friendship week and we began the morning by reading a wonderful story about two friends, Leroy and Rani. They live in a very happy place where friendship ‘tokens’ are given out freely, for lots of different things! However. These ‘tokens’ are not golden coins or tickets, they are simply actions or words that make the other person feel valued. We thought very hard about how we could give out friendship tokens to not only our secret friend this week, but to everyone we come across!

Then we looked at gingerbread with a difference!! Instead of ingredients like flours and butter, our gingerbread needed all the ingredients that we thought would make a very good friend!

What do you think makes a good friend?

    4. They trust your opinion/listens to you
    5. They keep your secrets private
