Links to PSHE - show sensitivity to other needs and feelings. 
Linking with the children's work in the classroom where they have been learning about friendship and kindness, I read to the children a book called The giving tree by Shel Silverstein. 
We talked about how kind the tree was, if they felt the boy was kind and if they were the boy would they have behaved differently? The children then went out into the woods and collected branches so they could make their own giving tree. This week the children painted their branches and then planted them in a pot with a view to making a group giving tree. They then gave things back to the tree, they made it leaves, necklaces, books and fruit.
