If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together, there is something you must always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. 

                                                                 (Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh - A.A.Milne)

This term one of the Christian Values is Friendship. During this challenging time it is hard not being able to meet with friends and play the games you normally play, however times like these make you really think about how important friendship is. 

                                   Friendship Is...

   Finding things to do together

   Relying on each other

   Impossible on your own

   Enjoying being together

   Never selfish 

   Depending on someone else

   Sharing hopes and dreams

   Happiness and laughter

   Including others



1)     Read the acrostic poem about friendship, which line do you think is the best way of describing friendship? Why?

        Can you write your own acrostic poem about friendship, maybe use the name of your friend instead of the word friendship?

        Remember to share your poems with your class teacher using your class email.  Good Luck!

2)     What makes a good friendship? Use the key template to write what you think makes a good friendship? You can decorate the key in

        any design that is appropriate, how colourful can you make it? When you have finished, post it through the school letter box and we

        will display the keys for everyone to see. Alternatively, complete the task using a computer and email it to your class teacher, we can

        print your finished key for you. Paper copies will be available in the foyer as from Monday 8th June.
