What kindness in friendship looks like.

A child's drawing of a school and a playground. On the playground is a hopscotch beside which a child has fallen down and their friend is helping them.

We were delighted to hear about so many kind friends at the University of Reading’s community festival. Here are some of the stories that children shared with us about kindness they had noticed:

My friend was kind to me at gymnastics when I hurt myself.

My friend stuck up for me and then the other person started being mean to my friend so I stuck up for my friend.

My friend felt sick so I fetched her lunch for her.

My friend helped me up when I hurt myself in the playground at school.

My friend stands up for people.

My friend helps me remember things when I forget them.

One girl helped another girl who fell and cut her knee.

Tell me how your friends show kindness.
