Daisy, Rebecca and Naomi explain to us how they are the best of friends and sometimes they all like to play together, sometimes just two of them will play together and even though they are best friends, sometimes they just like to spend time on their own.
This could be used to show how strong friendships can be and how friends understand each other. Why do we make friends? What makes a good friend? Encourage pupils to think of as many qualities as possible and write them on the board. Children could then work in pairs and discuss what makes their best friend the best and in what way they think they are good friends too. Could the whole class agree on maybe 3 characteristics for good friendship?
