Our class and Ms McKenna’s Reading Unit are doing the ‘FRIENDS For Life’ programme together every week.  Each letter of the word FRIENDS stands for something.  So far we have talked about ‘Feelings’, ‘Relaxing’ and ‘I can do it’!!  We will tell you what the rest of the letters stand for when we have done them.  

On our last session we spoke about how we can have unhelpful  (red) and helpful (green) thoughts about things, and how we can change red thoughts to green thoughts.  Here are some examples of our red and green thoughts about going to secondary school.  

We are really enjoying doing the programme together and learning about things like milkshake breathing to help us cope with stressful situations and anxiety.
