    Hello everybody,

    I am planning PSHE for autumn term. I have to create 1/2 lessons based on 'making new friends'?

    I have NO CLUE what to do as the children have already met me + are in the same class. Any ideas?
    Also, I was going to do an additional lesson based on overcoming difficulties within friends but I'm not sure if thats too farfetched for the topic 'making new friends'...let me know what you think please!

    Many thanks,

    What age are we talking here.
    Reception and year 6 will probably both cover this topic, but clearly not in the same way.

    SEALS is out of favour now but they had a whole topic on there called 'Getting on and Falling Out' that had ideas and activities for Y1 - Y6. Possibly you could adapt some of these. Just google Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning.

    For making new friends - you could always turn it around and make it about different kinds of friendships and how they could be made 'new' or better?

    Have a look at anything to do with 'circle of friends' and the circle of relationships (concentric circles with them in the middle and the child can write in who is in each of the outer circles). How would they feel if there was no one in their closest friends circle?

    Also every year 4 class I have ever known have fallen out over playing games with rules, such as tig/tag or football (as should be really in their stage of development). Someone makes the rules without discussion with the others, someone else joins the game who either breaks the rules or adds others without discussion and it all ends a big mess. So how could communication and perhaps an agreed rules 'contract' in the class made by the children make friendships 'new' and on a more collaborative footing?

    Just an idea
