Topic focus: Jesus’ rule for friends.

Suggested Prayer to start your R.E session:

Prayer for friendship

Loving God, 

Bless my life with the gift of friendship. 

For those who have chosen to be my friends, 

I am grateful.

Let our love, respect, 

and affection for each other flourish.

Make me a good friend, 

one who is loyal and caring and ready to forgive. 

To you, who are our truest friend, I pray.


Suggested Song to start your session: "Come and join the circle"


  • Is there anything which might break the friendship circle?
  • What are some things that make you and others unhappy? Talk about saying sorry?
  • What does it mean to forgive?
  • What is Jesus’ rule?
  • What will happen when you are happy together?
  • Why do you like your friends?
  • What makes a good friend?
  • What will help to mend the circle?

Task: Can you make a friendship card for one of your classmates?
How can we show our friendship without being together at the moment?


Suggested song to finish your session: 'I'm Sorry'
