Thank you to everyone who joined us for our class story time today. I was lovely to see so many of you!
We shared the story of the Little Red Hen and as promised here is the story for those who would like to read it again and for those of you who couldn’t join us.
In this story the Little Red Hen asks her friends for help but they keep saying “no”.
What do you think makes a good friend?
Here are some things which are good choices to help you to be a good friend.
We have been talking at my house about being a good friend and Beth decided a good way to help her remember how to be a good friend was to make a friendship flower. She chose 6 things she thought were most important to be a good friend.
Our printer at home is broken so rather than print off the symbols for being a good friend I made this on the computer.
Perhaps you could make a picture showing what makes a good friend.
There are lots of ways to be a good friend and we practise being good friends a lot at school.
Being helpful is an important part of being a good friend – at school we help each other all the time. Some ways we are helpful include …
Hanging up our coats in the morning.
Taking the register to the office.
Giving out the cups at tuck time.
These are just some of the helpful things we do.
You can be helpful at home too. Here are some ideas …
You could tidy up your toys
You could make your bed
You could help to make dinner or a cake or wipe the table after dinner.
Lucy thought a lovely way to show these ways to be helpful was to make some helpful hands
How have you been helpful at home? You could make a picture showing ways to be helpful.
Please remember to send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org as we love to see what you have been doing.
Remember to be a good friend and be helpful!
