In RE, Years 1, 2 and 4 have been thinking carefully about the meaning of Advent and how Christians use the messages of Jesus Christ to inform their day-to-day lives.
So many of the parables and stories from the Bible encourage kindness and helpfulness towards others. With this in mind we all created ‘Kindness Calendars’ to use throughout advent.
All children chose something kind or helpful to do on each of the four Sundays’ of Advent – and some children even went as far as creating 24 doors, one kind action for each day of Advent! The children had some wonderful ideas, including; making their beds without being asked, tidying up their rooms, promising to smile at 10 people that day, making someone a card to tell them how much they are appreciated and helping with the cooking.
