Week 3 Theme: We need rules because we need each other
   Suggested Activities
 Messages: Key Stage 1  Key Stage 2
In a friendship trust must be maintained: dishonesty, selfishness, not listening, not being loyal, not caring etc. all threaten that trust. Circle time: Introduce the idea of being able to rely upon your friends. Ask "What makes you sad sometimes within a friendship?"
"I feel sad when my friends..........................."
"My friends feel sad when I ..........................."
Discussion: Remind children of joint code of friendship from week 2. What sort of things can happen between friends that are upsetting? (If specific incidents come up, perhaps maintain a distance by allowing e.g. occurrences back in time/last year etc. this protects the children)
Follow up: Group in 3s. Give a situation card to each group. On the front is a situation that happens to you. Discuss in your group how it makes you feel. On the back you are the perpetrator in the same situation. How do you feel? (scared, guilty, wish it hadn't happened?) Do you feel good about yourself?
example situation card: (Front) Your best ruler is stolen
(Back) You steal someone's best ruler
In our society we all need each other and, like a team, we need to be able to trust each other. The rules exist to make sure that people can trust each other otherwise things would go terribly wrong. Discussion: Think of a football team. Each player knows what is expected of them. The game has rules which make the game playable and safe. Everybody knows what they can and cannot do.
We are like a big team. We all need each other, and just like in football we need rules to work together and keep us safe. Take examples from week 2 of people we need. What do we expect from this person? :- honesty, politeness and respect, playing by the rules we all understand.
Think of a scenario where one person we need doesn't play by the rules. For example a crooked baker? How many people are effected?

Rules are written down in many different places and in different ways. They are also written on our hearts.

Follow-up: look at different sets of rules - class rules, school rules, home rules, the law, 10 commandments, club rules. What do they have in common?

Discuss: Some things are quite simply wrong. Our rules tell us this, but we know in our hearts too by how we feel inside when we do something wrong.
