How do I support new pupils in secondary school with friendship issues?

Ages 11-12 ; Friendship

We have several packs in the Chameleon PDE PSHE resource library that focus on friendship and friendship issues. This particular pack is an introduction to friendships, their importance, what being a good friend means, and how to keep friendships happy and healthy. Pupils also investigate how and why friendships can change. If you have a particularly mature or advanced Year 7 group you may wish to skip this pack and use these packs instead; "Managing change in a friendship", "Peer influence". "A welcoming and inclusive school", or any pack from the Personal Skills Development theme.

This pack contains the following activities:

  • Form a friend
  • Healthy friendships
  • Friendship poem
  • What would you do?
  • Friendship values, toxins and parasites
  • Friendship scenarios
  • Making new friends

This resource includes the following files:
