Acts of kindness

Random Actof Kindness!

In these uncertain times we are thinking about random acts of kindness in an attempt to inspire kindness in unforeseen times. We would love to find out about the ways in which our children are spreading kindness - we have also included a list from Mental Health Foundation to inspire you.

1) Pick an item from the list below
2)Take action
3)Share the 
kindness  by emailing me (ightenhillclass5@ightenhill.lancs.sch.uk) and we will showcase your kind act in our class gallery.
