Friendship was the theme for our recent Year 5 assembly. We introduced this idea by saying hello to all of our friends in other classes in a variety of different languages. We then asked the question: what does friendship really mean? We received some great answers back form the other school pupils, and then added to these by offering up some ideas as to what friendship means in Year 5.
We have been writing and developing our own friendship poems during literacy lessons. We wanted the pupils to make their poems as personal as possible, and to describe the emotion that they feel from having close friends around them at Michael Faraday. We shared a selection of these during our assembly, and then finished by asking the other pupils to consider how important their own friendships are.
