Discussion question: Ask pupils to talk about a time when a friend helped them to make a decision. Did it make them feel happy or sad that they had help from others?
Active learning: Split the class into 4 or 5 even groups and prepare them for a relay race. Start the races off and encourage the children to support each other with cheers and claps and positive words. Remind the children to work together as a team.
Use the same cards as the previous week.
Split the children into pairs and ask them to sit down in a small marked area in the middle of the hall. Encourage the children to create a happy and positive atmosphere by clapping and saying positive things when a pair completes the challenge.
Using the same cards as the previous weeks, choose a pair from the middle of the room to start on station 1. Once they have completed the challenge select another pair from the centre of the room to try the next station. See how many stations you can get through as a group!
