Kindness workshop with 52 lives

By Mental Health lead, in SEND SUPPORT - Tuesday, 19 September 2023

Today all pupils in year 1-6 took part in a brilliant virtual workshop on kindness with the wonderful charity '52 lives'. 


We had an online Kindness Workshop from the charity 52 Lives ( and their School of Kindness! We learned that kindness has three qualities – being friendly, generous and considerate.  We learnt about the science of kindness and the positive impact it has on our physical and mental health. Next, we practised empathy by watching videos of kindness in action and then said kind things to each other in the classroom.  To put our kindness into action, we thought of someone we knew who could do with a little kindness. We then made them something in our classrooms and plan to give it to them this week.  Finally, we looked at the quote ‘be the change that you want to see in the world’ and decided that we can help to create the kind of world we want to live in. 


The School of Kindness has a Kids’ Club which is free to join where you will get a free newsletter with kind challenges, stories, activities, jokes, competitions and videos to watch.  Just visit to sign up.
