This week Year 6 had their second peacemakers session. This week’s focus was all around the children thinking about what they need in order to feel confident and comfortable to talk to somebody about their feelings. They also watched a short video that highlighted how people may feel and the choices that they should make in order to seek help and support.
Building on our value word for this month “Thoughtfulness” Mrs Butterworth led the class in a discussion about how the children could demonstrate thoughtfulness both in and outside of school. The children generated a range of ideas and considered the positive impact that even very simple actions can have. Mrs Butterworth finished by setting the children a task:
Children have to try an perform at least 12 random acts of kindness before Christmas.
They need to keep a log of what they do, writing a full explanation of each.
For each child that completes the task, Mrs Butterworth and the Year 6 team will perform at least one random act of kindness in the new year.
