The boxer, Muhammed Ali, said; “Friendship… is not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything. ”
Throughout our lives, we make friends… lots of them. Some will be lifelong friends, whilst others we might just meet for moment. Some friends will encourage us, make us laugh and share in our joy, whilst others will help us when we’re sad and be patient with us when we’re angry.
This activity encourages pupils to think about friendship, and about the friends that they are grateful for. It involves the pupils taking a petal, writing or drawing a prayer of thanks for a friend and then adding it to a big ‘Friendship Flower’.
