On Friday 13th November the children at Lyndhurst thought about how they could be kind as it was World Kindness Day.  The children discussed how they can make the world a better place by being kind.  There was lots of talk about how just simple acts of kindness make a big difference to others.  In Pre-Reception and Reception the children created their own buckets and talked about how they can be bucket fillers, from the book ‘Have You Filled a Bucket Today?: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids’.

“When our buckets are full, we are happy; when they are empty, we are sad. It is important to know that we can fill our own bucket and so can others. We can dip into buckets too.” – Author, Carol McCloud

Year One and Year Two created rainbow clouds with delightful rays of kindness, whilst Year Four and Year Three were kindness florists delivering kindness flowers to different adults around the school.  Year Six and five wrote some delightful post-its.

Together the school united to create Kindness sunflowers brightening up the corridor to the Sugden Room.

In a world where you can be anything – Be Kind.
