Acts of kindness assembly
This whole school assembly discusses what it means to be kind and how it makes us feel.
It aims to aid children's understanding of how small acts of kindness can make a big difference and particularly focuses on acts of kindness carried out during the coronavirus pandemic. It invites all pupils to carry out their own acts of kindness.
Acts of Kindness Day takes place every February but this assembly can be held at any time of the year.
An extract from the resource:
Ask: What do we mean by kindness?
Take a few responses.
Explain that kindness is good for everyone’s wellbeing. We feel better when someone is kind to us, and we also feel good when we are kind to someone else. The good thing is that it is extremely easy to be kind! Kindness often starts with something very small – one compliment, one smile, one favour, one hug, one thank you, one donation, one walk, one card, one gift, one flower. We can be kind in so many different ways.
Ask children to take a moment to think about something they have done to be kind recently. Take responses from children of different ages.
