Friendship – Autumn Term (second half) 2023

Click for a larger .pdf version!

We are starting the second half of the Autumn Term by learning about the Christian Value of Friendship.

Over the next half term we will be taking part in a number of ‘Friendship’ activities during Collective Worship and across the school.  The aforementioned will be linked to Remembrance and its power to unite people of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds, while also remaining deeply personal.

Jesus tells stories of the heavenly banquet to which all are invited. The barriers between people are broken down in a loving community around God and Jesus had stern words to say to those who refused to recognise that all are included in this community of friendship.

The writer of Ecclesiastes puts it very simply:

“If one falls down, a friend can lift him up”

Ecclesiastes 4:10

It would be wonderful to see a large proportion of the children taking part in the home-school challenge. You can explore this value at home using the resource.
