‘I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God’.  In a court of law a witness swears an oath on the Bible or another sacred text, but sometimes in everyday life people find it more difficult to be truthful.

Talk together about occasions when complete honesty could cause trouble or be hurtful. For example:
• When a member of your family asks you if you like their new shoes
• When telling the truth will get your friend into trouble
• When someone asks what you are thinking but the answer would hurt their feelings

Thought of the Day

Trust

Trust is a really important value.  It must be earned. If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them.
Talk together about:
• people who you know that are trustworthy
• practical ways that we can show others that we are trustworthy
• why it is important to be able to trust others when working together as a team
