52 Lives: School of Kindness

It's recycling week so we are thinking about ways we can be kind to our planet. We can't wait to see all of the completed entries in the challenge! Here is an example below! What a little star! 

    

 

Story time

Here is a link to a wonderful story called 'Ten Things I can do to Help my World.' We hope you enjoy it!

Thank you and well done to everyone who took part in the Kids' Kindness challenge last week of 'Back to School Kindness'. Our learners thought carefully about what kind thing they did at school to help new children feel welcome...

                         

 

               

 

  You all make us feel so proud to be your teachers heart

  

A very warm welcome back as we emerge into the wonderful Autumn season of kindness! 

We are so excited to build upon all of the incredible kindness that we continue to see year upon year here at Westerhope Primary by our kind learners and grown ups.

 

As always, we love to hear of any acts of kindness and kind messages so we can celebrate and be inspired by them! Please get in touch with Mrs Hay emily.hay@westerhope.newcastle.sch.uk 

When we saw one of our lovely Reception learners being handed litter pickers from her grown up at home-time we had to find out more! 

 

This is the wonderful message from her mum...

"This is the second year heart has taken part in 30 days wild in June, organised by Wildlife Trust. We complete activities linked to exploring wildlife every day in June. The photos are of heart planting wildflowers for bees, birds and butterflies; hugging trees on our daily dog walk as trees are so important for nature and us; litter picking (a regular occurrence as heart often points out rubbish on the streets/in parks); collecting garden waste to make a nest for birds to help them lay their eggs safely."

       

 

We just love hearing of such wonderful acts of kindness so we can celebrate and be proud that we have such kind learners in our school, like our lovely reception pupil here! Thank you for spreading kindness.

 

 

During the Easter break, 52 LIVES are inviting children to take part in an Easter Kindness Challenge. All the children need to do is complete the 15 kind activities found on the challenge sheet. Not only will they be helping other people, they will also be helping themselves…because when we’re kind it improves our own physical and mental health.

Please read the full Competition Terms & Conditions before entering set by 52 LIVES.
Deadline for entries: 2nd May 2022.

 

If your child wishes to take part in the challenge, the challenge sheet is attached below to download or your child can find it in our kindness post box station situated outside Reception class. Once completed, please return and post in our kindness postbox.

 

A wonderful example of the little kindness delights which get posted in our school kindness postbox. Thank you to this kind star for creating this fantastic word search!

 

Creative kindness in Reception

Our incredible reception children have been busy using their imagination to create their own 'kind world' using lots of loose parts as part of a kindness competition set by 52 Lives School of Kindness.

Here is the most incredible world ever (we all want to live here!)

 

AND We have some very exciting news to share! Click on the link below which features a video by our friend Greig who announces the winners!

Our Westerhope hearts are full of kindness

We are so proud to be named a 'Kind School' by the lovely charity 52 Lives...and even prouder to have a school full of children with the kindest hearts possible heart

 

Here is a trip down memory lane showcasing some wonderful examples of our incredible children and grown ups spreading kindness.

 

Imagine a world where everyone is kind?
