Reflection Time and Prayer of the Day

Good Morning Brown Clee!

I hope you’ve had a good weekend and are ready for another busy, fun week of learning!  Last week we started to think about our Christian value of this half term – FRIENDSHIP: we discussed the importance of trust, and we watched some stories from the Bible that demonstrated different aspects of friendship.  Today I want us to continue reflecting on FRIENDSHIP and thinking deeply about what it actually means – as sometimes I think we can take it for granted.

I’d like to start with us remembering our Mission Statement – “We are a Learning Community that nurtures and empowers everyone to be the best we can be” – we are very used to thinking about how we can try our best in our lessons, but do we think about how we can be the best person we can be?  What would it mean to “be the best friend we can be”? …..enjoy watching this short video from Disney which shares some great friendship over the Disney years!  Have a think about what makes the characters such strong friends – what ingredients do they need to make their friendships work?

Did you spot some of your favourite Disney friendships?  And did you think about what made them such good friends?  If you could make your own character recipe – what ingredients would you put into the mix?  I’ll start you off with some ideas then have a chat in class and see what else you’d put into your Friendship mix…

  • A jar of kindness,
  • A spoonful of listening,
  • A can of honesty,
  • 1kg of forgiveness…..
  • …….over to you!

How many ingredients did you put into your friendship recipe? I’m sure there were loads as Friendship takes many forms – but I wonder what the one main ingredient is, that without, it might mean the friendship doesn’t last?…..Remember we might all have a different idea – but for me – I’d have to say ‘LOVE’ – as if we remember what God’s greatest commandment is – “Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind” – I think God is telling us to simply love each other – and tomorrow we will think a little more about what this might mean.

Let’s take a quiet moment of reflection – think about your friendship recipe – do you think you have all those ingredients?  Have you got any missing, and if so what can you do about it so that you can be the very best friend you can be?

Listen to this song about friendship and reflect on how we can be a better friend to others…

Prayer of the Day

Dear God,

Thank you that we have our very special friends.

Help us always to follow your rules of friendship

and to think about our friends before we think about ourselves.

Help us to take care of each other just as you take care of us.

Amen.
