It is a fantastic pack to use at the beginning of the new school year when the children are all settling into new classes with new children and having to make new friends. I used the scenario cards, by putting the children into groups and then getting them to brain storm how they would handle the different scenarios that come up in the classroom. We have written them up and attached them underneath the scenario card so that they have become a resource for the children to go back to and use should the need arise. This was powerful as it gave them ownership and helped them problem solve.
There was so much rich discussion in the class. Thank you for a fabulous resource. I will definitely use it again.
I used Friendship word cards, What would you do and A Good Friend activities with a Young Person on 3rd exclusion. He was reluctant to engage or write but loved these activities. I printed out and laminated Friendship word cards and spent whole morning discussing. English and PHSE all in one, unbeknown to Young Person.
Great resources to initiate re-engagment.
Thanks for your wonderful review Karen. It's great to hear that they have worked so well with your student.
This Pack is really impressive. I should know by now that Mark and Helen always go above and beyond, but I was still amazed, as I scrolled through it, how many useful things were in there, and the trouble they had taken in presenting them in different formats to suit all types of readers. I especially love the Friendship Challenge Cards, the Picture Prompts, and the what Would You Do cards. Terrific stuff!
Well I'm all set to use this tomorrow. A fantastic resource for teachers, learning mentors, nurture staff and parents. These resources allow children (individuals and groups) to explore what being a friend and friendship are all about. Plenty of chances for discussion and exploration and for working alone with a child who has friendship troubles.
