Messages of kindness

Being kind to someone, even if it is simple, can make a huge difference to someone’s day. During this time, the small acts of kindness we used to do every day without thinking are more difficult to do safely with social distancing in place. Now we must think about how we can be kind to those far away from us.

Many people have been displaying extraordinary acts of kindness: safely delivering food to people; offering free meals to key workers; making protective clothing for health workers. Recently Captain Tom showed extraordinary kindness when he raised over 20 million pounds for the NHS.

Regardless of the size of our acts of kindness, they can make a huge difference to others. One such act of kindness might be writing and sharing a message of support. For example, thousands of people sent Captain Tom a birthday card for his 100th birthday and many homes are displaying messages of thanks to health workers.

Today's Activity:

Learners will:

  • develop empathy by thinking about others
  • consider the power of kindness
  • think about ways that they can be kind to others
  • share stories of kindness and help others

 

 Video activity: Why be kind?

Click on the link below and watch Georgia’s video about being kind on our new First Aid Champions website.

What does she say about being kind and why it is important?

https://firstaidchampions.redcross.org.uk/primary/kindness-and-coping/

 

Draw a picture of a heart on a piece of paper and fold it in half.  On one side, write down all the kind acts that people do for you, e.g.  like when your sibling plays with you or your parent/carer cooks food that you like (you could write each one in a different bit of your heart, colouring the background of each act in a different colour).

On the other side of your heart, write down all the kind acts that you do for others and that also make you happy, e.g. maybe you call your grandparents, or tidy up all your toys (again, colour the background of each act in a different colour}. Keep going until your heart is full.

Think about how kindness can fill up your heart. Imagine how your kind acts fill up the hearts of others.

 

Enjoy your day and happy learning!

Living together with kindness

 After a few weeks of being inside the house, tensions can start to rise! A tense atmosphere can make it difficult to stay focused and motivated, and this can affect well-being. Working together effectively, can only be achieved if tensions are resolved constructively.

When resolving tensions and defusing conflict, key things to think about are how to continue to be kind and how to make things ‘C.A.L.M.E.R

  • Consider: The need for respect and kindness about how others are feeling. Learn to empathise and see things from each other’s point of view.
  • Acknowledge: The time needed to address every person’s problem. Let each person speak.
  • Listen: To how everyone feels, their worries and fears and how they can feel better. This includes listening to and understanding body language.
  • Manage: Provide support and empathy to each other.
  • Enable: Support and help each other in the future. Establish some house rules for behaviour.
  • Resource: What did you learn? Use your skills and knowledge to defuse conflict in the future.

 

In these quick activities we can learn how to develop these skills to better communicate with each other. The activities focus on developing empathy and understanding.

 Learners will:

  • develop empathy by thinking about others
  • learn simple ideas to resolve tensions and defusing conflict
  • develop active listening skills
  • consider other people’s perspectives and feelings
  • learn how body language can show how we are feeling
  • explore how listening and resolving tensions can be an act of kindness

 

 Starter activity: Helpful and unhelpful things you can say

When someone is upset or angry, the first thing we do or say can make a big difference. It can make them feel better and solve the problem quickly. Look at the situations below. Think about the most unhelpful thing you could say, which would make the person feel worse. Now think about the most kind and helpful thing you could say, which would make the person feel better.

You can act out the situations with your household or you can write a script for the different scenarios to talk through.

  • Situation one: Your parent or guardian points out that the living room is a mess. There are books, shoes, clothes and dirty dishes scattered everywhere. They have told you to clean up many times, but it is not the first thing on your mind – mess really does not upset you.
  • Situation two: Your family member or friend is upset because they bought a prom outfit they were looking forward to wearing, but now their prom has been cancelled. Someone close to them tells them to stop being upset about something that they think isn’t important. They both want you to agree with them.
  • Situation three: You have been gaming/watching TV for a few hours and no one else has been able to use the TV. Your family member wants to watch their programme now.
  • Situation four: Your parent or guardian is working from home and you and your family members are listening to music loudly and having fun in the living room. They are in an important meeting in the next room. They come in and tell you all that they need some quiet time to focus.
  • Situation five: Your family member just wants to spend some time alone. They are not used to being around people for so long. You are bored and want to play with them. They are in their room and you burst in.

Now reflect on this activity.

Imagine the scenario from the different people’s perspectives. Think about the following questions:

> How might they feel if they hear an unhelpful comment? What about a helpful, kind comment?

> Why do you think it is important to say something helpful and not something unhelpful in these moments?

> How can kindness and understanding help us to resolve everyday tensions?

>Does it help to see a situation from another angle?

 

Happy learning everyone!

What is resilience?

Throughout history, people have adapted to difficult, changing situations when unexpected things happen and disrupt people’s lives. Being resilient means being able to adapt to these changes, being able to cope and keep going and support others to do the same through kindness. This activity will explore resilience and what it means to be adaptable to change.

 

Resilience can mean different things to different people. It can mean that people are able to keep going even if they find themselves in a difficult situation, by finding ways to solve problems or adapting to fit the new situation.  One way to consider resilience is to talk about what you need in order to be resilient. The Red Cross believe there are four things you need to be resilient that they call ‘the pillars of resilience’:

  • You need connections with other people who can help and support you
  • You need some stability, like support from friends and family and certain things you do regularly
  • You need resources like food and shelter, and access to medical care
  • You need the ability to be adaptable and flexible

 

Why do you think these things are important? Now think about your own resilience, do you have things from the four pillars in place? If not, what could you do to ensure you have what you need to be resilient?

 

Reflective activity: Ripple effect

Part of resilience is understanding how things affect us and our communities. Draw a series of circles like ripples when you drop something into water. The inner circle is you, the middle circle is your friends and family, the outside circle is your school or community. Draw the ways in which the current situation has affected your life. It’s important to reflect how problems affect you personally and how they affect others.

How have you shown resilience to these changes? Who and what has helped you?

Think about another person’s perspective – do the ripple effect again for the people in the stories above, a family member or friend.

 

WELL DONE!!

As we come to the end of another half term of home learning, we want to say a HUGE well done to each and every one of you! In these difficult and sometimes challenging times, you continue to be amazing - working hard, learning new skills and we are in no doubt that you are showing acts of kindness each and every day!

Next week is half term, so we are giving you the break from your learning, that you very much deserve!

Have a really great week with your family, do lots of things that you enjoy and have fun!

Continue to take care and stay safe, and we will see you back here for more learning opportunities on Monday 1st June.

Love from

Miss Adams, Mrs Parkinson, Mr Thompson & Mr Harding
