For this challenge, children should write a letter or create a piece of art to show that we care and are thinking of them, particularly at this time.

Letters and artwork should be photographed and emailed to your child’s class teacher. These will then be printed off, put in envelopes and sent.

Weekly Kindness Activity:

 

Ephesians 4:32 - Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

 

 Thank someone 

Telling someone you’re grateful for being a listening ear, cooking you a meal or lending you their bike is bound to put a smile on their face. It shows you really care for their well-being and might be exactly what they need to hear to improve their self-worth. It’s great for their mental health and your own, as gratitude is proven to improve your mood. 

 

Say thank you to someone you are grateful for , for all the things they have done for you.
