Understanding what makes a good friendship is something we talk about a lot in school. Everyone has different expectations which can even vary from friend to friend. So today in our Forest School we decided to make some delicious Friendship Soup. The lively chatter was constant. Which is more important honesty or trust? Can you have one without the other? Do we have to be friends forever and what happens when friends argue? Isn’t having chocolate in your soup really important because chocolate makes everyone happy! They debated with real insight and chose different natural materials to represent different attributes.
As you can see they made a marvellous, muddy mess, but it was a really fun way of getting the children to think about relationships, what is important to them and how are own actions can effect others.
