Today is a short blog post but one with a very big impact and answer.

What is kindness?

Kindness during this time is vital and we have seen acts of it across the country and the world.

I am sure you have all thrown a rock into a pond before and seen the ripples, even though the rock is small the ripples grow larger and larger, for me this represents acts of kindness. Each act of kindness no matter how small makes a ripple, each act of kindness produces another one. One act of kindness can change a life!

What is kindness to you? When have you shown an act of kindness?

Each day is an opportunity to change a life, be thankful and make a difference. You all have changed my life with your acts of kindness so thank you!

    Hi Mr Ralph Our family motto is to have courage and be kind. Being kind means doing something to make someone else feel happy. Last week I made some scones for my next door neighbour who lives on her own. She was very happy. And my dad does her shopping every week, which is kind of him. From Holly

    Good morning Holly, wow that is a very nice motto and I can really see it in how you act in class. That is very kind of you to make scones and your dad going shopping. We all need to be kind during this time and you are doing a great job. Have a great day, Mr Ralph

    Hi Mr Ralph, Hoping all is well 🤞🏻, In my point of view kindness is when you are helpful and forgiving and when you are nice , I was helpful when I was at my Oma and Opa’s (Dutch for grandparents) house . My brother and I usually help Opa with the logs and jobs in the house and in the garden and workshop. Stay safe Eddie (I am not a robot) xxx ☮️🉐㊙️🈯️💹☮️

    Hello Hedgehogs!!! I hope you are well? It's great to read your blogs and hear what you have been doing. You are all very busy and we we are all missing you at school. Kindness means so much to me, from an act, to a smile. So much kindness is being shown at the moment, it's amazing. Take care and keep safe, we are all super proud of you. Love Mrs Miles

    Hi Mr Ralph, I think kindness is a feeling not an action. 😜 Imagine if a leaf 🍃 was kindness and one fell off the tree, others fall as well. Which is a good example of one hard feeling creates more hard feelings. The same is true with kindness! 🌳🌿🍃 From Abigail A 🐝 💨 Xxxxx

    Hi Abigail, that is very true and it is a good example of how feelings multiply and can be good or bad. I always saw acts of kindness from you and feelings of kindness. Have a good day can't wait to have you back in school. From Mr Ralph

    Hello mr Ralph Kindness is being caring and helping. I was kind when me and my sister made 67 cards for a care home in Basingstoke to make them happy and smile. I like being kind to my friend and family because it shows them I love them Jas x
