World Kindness Day celebrations!
World Kindness Day celebrations in Westerhope!
What a fabulous day we have had celebrating World Kindness Day in school today. We are always so proud of how much kindness we see everyday in school so today was about sprinkling our Westerhope kindness magic even further than we already do!
We started the day with a virtual assembly led by the director of kindness Greig from School of Kindness at 52 Lives charity. The assembly taught the children about the importance of kindness, the science of kindness and the impact it has on our physical and mental health.
It most certainly got us energised for a wonderful day full of kindness!
From writing kindness messages to our friends and family in EYFS, to creating 'buddies' in Year 1 and Year 4, and exploring kind books together throughout school are just a few examples of the wonderful kind activities we have done today.
We can't wait to share photographs of the day with you very soon!
A big thank you to the the families who shared the most wonderful stories of kindness shown by their little one at home too.
Our hearts were bursting with happiness to hear...
One of our learners drew a picture for a homeless person they had passed on the street who had a dog and some food for the man (including a snack for his dog!), another learner helped her mummy make dinner by chopping the carrots, mashing the potato and setting the table - such a help! One of our learners has been busy filling shoe boxes full of treats for residents at a care home and another kind learner made sure that everyone in her family were offered a sweet before she ate any! It was also fabulous to hear how one of our learners is a brilliant help to his mum and siblings. He helps his little sister when crossing the road or if she needs help with eating her breakfast, he evens makes his mum a drink when he feels she needs a little rest! How lovely!
