A series of sessions to reflect on and teach friendship skills. Based on 10 stories about characters who live on Friendship Terrace. Especially relevant for children who find making and keeping friendships difficult and for children with an autistic spectrum disorder.
There are discussion questions on each story with ‘short of time’ and ‘extra time’ alternatives. Characters and their houses can be made into a frieze for the classroom.
Sue Nicholls, the author of the pack, has worked as a youth worker and childminder and has a particular interest in developing children’s emotional literacy.
We have included a second alternative set of character names and their stories. This is to avoid the situation of children in the classroom having the same name as some of the Friendship Terrace characters with less attractive attributes!
Aims: The pack helps children recognise ‘friendship blockers’ and ‘friendship builders’. Teachers, teaching assistants and therapist could use this material one-to-one or in a group, for example in circle time.
Age Range: 4–12years. KS1 – KS2.
Curriculum Targets: P scales; Speaking, Listening, Learning. KS1/KS2 English/PSHE.
Format: PDF file, 161 pages, including colour pages showing the characters and their houses; black and white duplicates for children to colour. Questions and instructions. Available as a download, 12.9MB or on CD.
