LI: To manage relationships positively
Many of us focus on the positive ways that people care for one another, especially in families and friendships. It encourages us to consider the most important aspects of maintaining positive relationships and reflect on how this can be challenging at times of change or uncertainty.
Pupils are supported to talk about close relationships, recognise how their special people care for them and show how they too can care for others. Also encourage pupils to express worries about missing friends and family, and consider some positive ways to manage these feelings.
