This week was Friendship Week and so the story we read was particularly appropriate as it dealt with issues around bullying , loneliness and learning to make friends. The extract proved fairly difficult to understand simply by reading and using inference, so we decided to act out the story to help make things clearer— which it did as well as being a great deal of fun!

F—Friends Find things in common
R—Friends Respect each other
I– Friends Include one another
E—Friends have Empathy
N—Friends Need you
D—Friends Deserve you
S—Friends say Sorry when they are wrong
