STORY TIME

We have an exciting announcement! We are introducing Kids’ Kindness Club Story Time!  This is where we share a book that we love, that also links to our theme.  This time, our theme is about helping our planet and therefore we have chosen a wonderful book ‘Ten things I can do to help my world’

It is read today by Tanya, who has been a primary school teacher for 14 years and who is working with us here at the Kids’ Kindness Club! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

SHOW AND TELL

Last week we asked you if you can think of ways to help any new children starting at your school.  Eva, one of our Kids’ Kindness Club members, noticed that there was a new girl starting in her
Year One class. Eva decided to make her feel welcome by inviting her new friend to her 6th birthday party.

Well done Eva!

KIND STORY OF THE WEEK

Did you know that shoes can be made from plants?!

Alex Ward, a shoe designer from Essex was tired of making shoes that didn’t help the planet – he knew that there had to be another way.  He started his own company called ‘aspect climate projects’ and after a LOT of research and testing, he has successfully made trainers using plant-based materials such as pineapples, coconuts and cork! The shoes have had their materials independently tested for their impact on the planet, and for each pair sold, a contribution is made towards supporting global climate projects.

Well done Alex for making planet friendly shoes!

SHARE YOUR STORIES

We’d love to see what kind things you’ve been up to! If you’d like to share a photo of something kind you have done (for yourself or for someone else) ask a parent or guardian to send it to us.

Self-Kindness tip of the week:

Why not combine self-kindness with helping the planet?! This week you could take a bike or scooter ride maybe to school or around your local area. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins (hormones in your body) which increases your sense of well-being. Being on your bike or scooter is great for the environment too, so this is a double win!
