LEARNING THEME:KIND FRIENDS

We will be looking closely friendships and how we can make them better. In this topic we will be looking at subjects such as gentle hands, sharing and listening to each other.

THE BIG QUESTION: WHAT IS A KIND FRIEND?

We will be talking to the children about what it means to be a friend? We will be asking the children to think about and share what they think makes a good friend and what they could do to be a better friend?

LITERACY

The children will be introduced to a variety of different social stories. These stories look at different ways to be a good  friend, such as listening and sharing. The children will have the opportunity to talk about these skills, make their own books about them and even share some great ideas about how to do it better. The children will also be encouraged to listen to their peers when they are talking and then to respond to what they said.
