Ingredients to make a good friend

This assembly idea is to encourage children to think about what makes a good friend. A set of resources are available for download below. These could be shown on a large display or printed.

The ingredients shown in the resources are:

  • A jar of kindness,
  • A spoonful of listening,
  • A can of honesty,
  • A tube of trust,
  • A carton of patience,
  • 1kg of forgiveness,
  • A box of encouragement,
  • A pot of respect,
  • A bag of loyalty,
  • and a bottle of fun.

These could be used as part of a presentation in the form of a TV cookery show. You could discuss what each of the qualities means and why it is important. Could the children put these qualities in order of importance?

Can your pupils think of anything else that makes a good friend?
