Equivalent fractions are fractions with different numbers representing the same part of a whole.

Qualities of friendship

What is a friend? What do we mean when we call someone a friend?

Why do we need friends? Support, companionship, encouragement, help, advice, love, courage etc.

How do we choose our friends? What do we look for?


Let’s explore the different qualities of a good friend.

Use the sheet below with different qualities on it.

Qualities of a good friend – Activity sheet cards (1)

Place the quality in a list either ‘friendship quality’ or ‘not friendship quality’.

  • Are there any other qualities you think we should add to the list?
  • Which are the most important do you think?

Now choose your top three friendship qualities.

You can draw pictures to show these qualities or write the words in different colours and decorate.

Lie down, close your eyes and relax to some of your favourite music.
