This week we have been thinking about what makes a good friend and how we can show respect to everyone. We have done lots of activities to help us think about what happens when we are unkind to people. We looked at 2 apples, they both looked the same. We passed the first apple round the circle and said some unkind words to it. We then passed the second apple and said some nice things. Miss Angus then cut both apples in half. The children were shocked at what they had noticed. The apple that we spoke to with love and kindness was clean and white on the inside. The apple that we were all cruel to was bruised, mushy, and brown. We talked about when we say hurtful things to other people, we often can’t see the damage that we’re doing on the inside. On the other hand, our kind words can be used to build someone else up, and make them feel beautiful on the inside. We also looked at a little rhyme about the fact we can't fix a wrinkled heart.
