We talked about what makes a friend. We talked about sometimes wanting time alone and that is ok. As long as your friends understand.
We talked about hoping to be friends for a long time but understanding that sometimes some friends in each life phase carry through.
We enjoyed the X factor clips and thought Chrissie did the right thing.
Year 4 liked your friendship poem.
Year 1 told me that when they sang on the XFactor one member of the group Chrissie was better than the others and was asked to sing again. She was upset as she didn’t want to leave her friends but she sang again and got through to the next round. When she had finished her friends had all left without her and not supported her.
We made a recipe for friendship:
2 tablespoons of kindness,
A pinch of fun,
1 handful of love,
1 litre of playing nicely,
3 heaped tablespoons of sharing,
A squirt of patience,
A sprinkle of happiness.
We discussed whether we would be friends with someone forever and the children said that this might happen but not always as sometimes your path in life might take you down another road.
Year 1 said they try to be friends with everyone but sometimes there are people you get on better with than others because you share the same interests.
We all agreed you can be friends again after you fallout. You just need to say sorry and make up.
What happened to the band ‘Twisted’ on the X Factor?
Ava – the band got rejected as a group but one of the singers got asked to audition as a solo. Initially her friends encouraged her but then they were horrible and left without giving her a lift home.
Do you think Chrissie’s bandmates behaved well? Why?
Lily – No because they encouraged her to audition as a solo but then left her without a lift home. They also left her keys and money unattended and I think this is rude and not a good friend.
Just like a delicious cake friendships need lots of ingredients and a lot of work to make them good.
Will you always be friends forever?
Keeyen – yes and no because sometimes things change such as moving schools or house.
Tom – sometimes people grow apart and have different interests and that’s ok.
Can you be friends with everyone?
Alice – Mostly yes because you can be kind to everyone but there are some mean people in the world.
Can you be friends again after you have fallen out?
Zeb – yes definitely because you can make up and move

Twisted the band
– on X factor on e girl was asked to stay and the others were sent home. Her friends weren’t supportive. They left her and they were her lift and had her house keys. They also sent her mean messages online.
We think that Christie’s band mates behaved horribly. They were mean and unsupportive and real friends would have helped and supported her and stayed.
