6 Red – Wednesday 20th May

Good morning Year 6! Did everyone have a lovely evening yesterday? Anyone got any news to share with the rest of us? It’s almost half term and then Year six you only have half a term left at Broad Heath ! Where has time gone? I am sure you too are missing being at school with your friends, playing sports together and discussing the next chapter in your lives; starting secondary school!

There will come a point in everyone’s lives where we will need friends to help us get through both the good and the bad times. I know personally myself I wouldn’t have got through the challenges I have faced without having fantastic friends in my life. So here’s my question for your all today:

What makes a good friend?

  1. Friends are important because when your friend needs help, if you help them, then they will help you when you need help and you can become a better person and make more friends to play with and have fun.

  2. Good friends are loyal and accept you for who you are during the good and bad times. Good friends are also honest — honest enough to tell you when you’re not being a good friend yourself. … Along with good friends who are present, loyal, and honest, most people want friends who are trustworthy.

  3. I think a good friend is when you they help you out whenever needed, they will try everything they can to keep you happy, and they will always car for you. They will show this by: Helping when injured, They probably will give you presents to keep you happy on your birthday, And playing together ‘happily’ to keep both, you and your friend, happy. This is how you will know they are showing care towards you.

    • Hi Riyad, it’s so lovely to hear from you. Yes I agree with your thoughts, friends are there to make you happy and vice verse. 👍🏼

  4. A good friend I someone who has a good personality someone who is good to be around and they can make you laugh when your feeling down and put you on the right path. Additionally, a good friend sticks by you no matter what and helps you.

  5. I think a good friend is someone that sticks up for you , and is helpful to not just one person but others too . A think a good friend is someone that is different to you for example I mean like the way they dress, the way they talk , or even the way they act.

    • Lovely thought there Leona, yes a good friend is someone who may be completely different from you but still respects you as an individual. Why do you think that friends sometimes fall out? Does this make the relationship stronger or weaker ?

  6. I had a fine evening yesterday, how about you?
    What makes a good friend?
    I believe that a good friend is someone that you can trust and that is loyal towards you. They also have to be honest because if they are not honest then you can not trust what they are saying and you will not know the truth.

  7. Thank you for asking,I did have a lovely evening yesterday. How was your evening ?To me a good friend should be someone who will point you in the right direction and help you in your hard times.Also a good friend should be able to understand your feelings.

  8. A good friend always helps you when you sad. A good friend always makes you laugh when you crying. A good friend knows if your upset or happy. A good friend might come to your house to come play with you. A good friend would bring you presents for your birthday.

    • Hi Zahrah, yes I agree good friends are great at making you laugh! Do good friends have to buy you presents for your birthday? Or could they do something else to show you how much they care about you?

  9. If you’re feeling down, a good friend will support you. If you need help, a good friend will try to help out. A good friend is making us laugh whenever we sad. A good friend knows our filings. Good friend is taking a good path and a bad friend is taking a bad path. Don’t limit you self by having just one bast friend. Remember that you only need a small circle of friend to be happy, and it’s a good idea to keep your most precious thoughts and moments for those that really care about you.

    • Hi Shree, it’s so lovely to hear from you ! Please could you re-read your responses to check for spellings. This is how you spell “feelings.”

      Yes I absolutely agree with you, we all need great friends in our lives! What qualities do you have which makes you a great friend?

  10. Well if you ask me. Making a good friend is to watch their acts. For example your lonely. And you see somebody that you would like to be your friend. I would first see what they are doing maybe if they are helpful. So then I would go up to them and say will you be my friend. Now here is the problem. If they say ummmmm. You will know that means no. But if they say yes. Then that shows that they actually need love.
    I couldn’t think of a better explanation then this so I hope it makes sense.

  11. I had a lovely evening yesterday How was yours?
    I think that a good friend is someone who is there nevertheless and someone who would cheer you up when you are feeling down.To me a friend is someone that I would usually play sports with and games.
