Children were reminded of the spirit of Christmas when they spent a special ‘Day of Kindness’ making sure all their interactions were filled with thoughtfulness towards their fellow classmates and teachers.

With Christmas just around the corner, Mrs Rogers said the timing of the event was perfect as the festive season is a time to give and think of others.

Activities included picking up litter, writing a letter to a care home resident (see Classroom to Care Home), feeding the birds outside and producing an advent calendar of kindness. They were also encouraged to say good morning and good bye to their peers, keep a record of their acts of kindness and draw pictures of what it means to them to show compassion for others.

Mrs Rogers said: ‘’Lockdown and coronavirus has had an impact on the emotions of youngsters and the Day of Kindness was a chance to remind them how important it is to think of others, their environment and the importance of kindness. The day was also an opportunity for them to explore their friendships with a new outlook.’’
