Dear Grasshopper Class,

How are you? Have you had a good week? I have really enjoyed speaking to you on the phone this week and hearing about all the wonderful things you have been doing. I have really enjoyed the sunshine this week and I was glad to hear that some of you were enjoying it as much as me. Fuzzy and I have been for a walk in the local park. We took some photos on our walk in the sunshine and we looked for some lovely and beautiful flowers.

This week Fuzzy and I heard that it is Mental Health Awareness Week. This year the focus is on kindness. We decided to think of some ways that we could show kindness to others. We decided to talk to some friends who we had not talked to in a while to see how they were. We also phoned an elderly lady who has been isolating on her own. She enjoyed having somebody to talk to. I went into school on Monday and talked to some of the children about what they had been doing to show others kindness. Here are some of the things they have been doing:

Phoning their grandparents

Helping their parents take food to vulnerable people and leaving it on their doorstep

Donating food to the Sutton Foodbank

Helping their parents with tidying the house

Smiling at people that they see in the park

What could you do to show kindness to somebody else this week? You never know, it might be best part of their day.

I’d love to hear about some of the things you do to show kindness. Maybe you could think of something somebody has done for you too. I am so grateful to all the people who have shown me kindness this week by sending me messages and cards to see how I am and to wish me a happy birthday. Some of you sent me birthday cards, thank you so much.

Fuzzy and I are going to have a break and rest next week for half term. I hope you have a nice half term. We look forward to catching up after half term.

Mr Ambler
