FRIENDS for Life is a program which is enjoyable for children. Room 26 is the first class to try it and we love it. It helps us to understand how to control our feelings, breathing, thoughts and it also helps us to find solutions to our problems. We’ve been learning how to change our red (negative) thoughts to green (positive) thoughts by asking ourselves yellow challenger questions. At the end of every lesson we do breathing techniques which we all really enjoy.
Today we talked about friendship qualities and support teams. A support team is a group of people you trust and who will always be there for you. We learned how valuable it is to have a strong support team, which we think are like the roots of a tree protecting it from stormy weather. We made a class forest by standing tall and supporting one another. We love FRIENDS for Life!!
