Getting on and Falling Out

  • When I am working in a group I can tell people if I agree or don’t agree with them and why.
  • When I am working in a group I can listen to people when they don’t agree with me and think about what they have said.
  • I know that sometimes difference can be a barrier to friendship.
  • I try to recognise when I, or other people, are pre-judging people, and I make an effort to overcome my own assumptions.
  • I know how it might feel to be excluded or treated badly because of being different in some way.
