Having friends is good for us.

Friends - Age 5-7

In this quiz, written for children in years 1 and 2, we take a look at friendships. Humans are social animals and we need friends for the sake of our mental health. So, part of the Personal Education section of PSHE is aimed at showing younger children how to form and maintain good, healthy friendhips.

How good are you at making friends? And, once you have made a friend, how good are you at keeping them? Friendships are important. All of us need friends - even adults. Friends can help us to feel happy and bring so many other benefits. So, learning how to make and be a good friend is very important. Not only for your happiness, but for theirs as well.

Have a go at this quiz. It might help you to be a better friend.

A new girl has joined your class. What should you do?
Tell her she is not allowed to play with your friends
Tell her to go back to her old school and old friends
Nothing - you have friends already
Ask her if she would like a friend and offer to play with her
It's always scary joining a new school so try and help them settle in and who knows, they could be your next best friend!
Uh oh! Your friend wants to play with someone else. What do you do?
Tell your friend they are not allowed to play with anyone but you
Tell this other person to leave your friend alone
Ask to join in or if you don't like the game play with someone else
Ask to join in or if you don't like the game force them to change it
You can have more than one friend and so can your friends! It doesn't mean you aren't still friends, it just means you have other people to play with.
Who has friends?
Only children and teachers
Only girls
Only children
Everyone on the planet has friends as everyone needs to talk, laugh and love!
How do you know if a friend is no longer a friend?
They are being mean to you or ignoring you
They support a different football team
They eat broccoli for lunch
They don't find your jokes funny
A friend can have different interests to you but we mostly get along with those that enjoy the same things as us.
How would you not describe someone that's your friend?
If someone is angry with you, they probably aren't your friend... or maybe they are having a bad day!
Oh no! Your friend says they don't like you any more. What do you do?
Eat their lunch
Kick them in the shin
Demand that they stay your friend
Ask them why, see if you can fix it and then, maybe find a new friend that will appreciate you
This is never nice but does sometimes happen. Sometimes a friend might not want to play with you or they change their interests and find they no longer have anything in common with you. If this happens, don't worry and know that there are millions of people in the world and so, millions of potential new friends.
What can you do to be a good friend?
Help them
Play with them
All of the above
A friend is nice to their friends.
You don't want to play with your friend any more. What should you say to them?
Get out of my space!
Sorry but I don't like you - go away
Go away
I'm sorry but I would like to try and play with someone new today - you can play too if you like
Explain to them that you'd like to try and play with someone else but let them join in too and you can expand your friendship circle together.
Which word would you not use to describe a friend?
If we like someone, we use nice words to describe them.
What is a friend?
Someone that has a younger brother
Someone that you share interests with and play with
Someone that you forced to be friends with you
Someone that doesn't like you that much
We pick friends that share interests with us; this could be colouring or playing football. It's our mutual interests that bond us together.
