This week we watched the movie Homeward Bound and witnessed how three friends (Chance, a young dog unfamiliar with the world; Shadow, an aging, wise dog; and Sassy, a snobby cat) take care of each other on their long journey back home.
In the story, when Shadow falls down in a ditch and ‘gives up’, Chance gives him an inspiring speech on how ‘never to give up’. Do you have a friend like Chance, Shadow or Sassy?
Explain the true meaning of friendship, and what qualities you would like to see in your friend (Please do not write any names).
Write a few paragraphs about how your friend has helped you ‘never to give up’ and always helped you to try your best.
