This year first class have been completing a programme called Zippy's Friends. The programme improves the abilities of young children to cope with difficulties. It develops their social skills and makes them more ready to help others with difficulties. In module 5 we explored how to cope with change and loss as we learned that Zippy the stick insect died. We talked about different burial customs and religions and we planned our own special ceremony for Zippy. We sang a song and we wrote messages to Zippy on the ground.
