In celebration of Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 and the theme of kindness, we are encouraging primary schools to get mentally healthy by spreading a little kindness.
This calendar, designed to be used throughout Mental Health Awareness Week, encourages pupils to do two acts of kindness each day – one for someone else and one for themselves.
Depending on the age of the children, there are two calendars included. One has two suggested kindness activities for each day, which is best for giving to younger children, or using as an example for older children. The other calendar is blank for older children to complete with their own ideas.
Reception and Nursery thought about how we kind show kindness to our friends. We used our kind hands to mix paint together, creating new colours with our friends.
Riley (Year 5) has been completing an act of kindness each day, including: making his mum and dad a cup of tea, writing a letter to mate his Auntie smile and handing out his chocolate cornflake buns to his neighbours
Ava (Reception) wanted to bake for her neighbours to show kindness. She made yummy cakes and wrote a little note to go with them.
Georgia, in Year 5, has been baking at home and then handed them out to her friends and neighbours

An act of kindness for our community
We received an email today from Emily in year 2 offering to make protective masks for any members of our school staff who would like one to help keep everyone safe.She is helping her mum to make them for other members of the community too.
How kind Emily thank you!
