The Kindness Award
February half term week is National Random Acts of Kindness Week and as a school, we want to take this opportunity to celebrate and encourage kindness throughout our community.
If you would like to get involved, below you'll find some activities and a competition to design a school Kindness Award.
Design and make an award/certificate/poster or picture to promote and celebrate kindness.
There are 4 different ways of entering the competition. All entries should show/represent kindness.
- Draw/paint a picture A3/A4 in size of someone showing/feeling kindness. You can use poster paints, ink, watercolours, felt pens etc.
- Design and make an A5 sized (half a page of paper) certificate to celebrate kindness. It can be drawn, painted, coloured with glitter pens, felt pens etc. or even made on the computer. You must have space for the name of the person getting the award and the date.
- Design and make a poster, A3/A4 in size, to encourage everyone to be kind in school. It can be highly decorated with glitter, paint, collage etc. The winning posters will be framed and displayed in school. So, think about an eye-catching message and picture/design.
- Design and make an award to celebrate kindness. E.g., a cup, a trophy, a medal, a plaque, a rosette, a badge, a ribbon etc in 3D form. You can use junk modelling, nets, objects, fabric, ribbon etc to create the award.
Class Teachers will then choose 4 winning designs from each class (1 from each category) and these will be put forward to the semi-final.
From these designs, winners will be selected in each category.
The overall winning designs for each category (picture/poster/certificate/award) will be used to decorate the school and one of them will be made into a ‘real award’. This will then be presented in school, at the end of every half term.
Plus, there will be a special prize for the overall winners in each category and runner-up goodies will be awarded.
Have fun everyone and remember, BE KIND!
