A Thousand Hours of Kindness!

Cheriton Primary School are proud to be a ‘Thousand Hours’ school for the first time this year. Thousand Hours is a kindness project designed to spread kindness throughout our school community and beyond.

Our mission is to achieve over 1000 hours of kindness as a school during the month of October (including half term). We have five key areas of kindness to work towards:

School kindness                

Community kindness

Self kindness                                

Family kindness

Ninja kindness

During Octobet all the children and adults will log acts of  kindness so that as a school we build up our ‘kindness hours’.

The children will all have a "Thousand Hours Passport" which  they can complete  at home or school.

Here are some ideas for how to be kind in each of the five areas:

School Kindness:

Keeping our classrooms and schools tidy

Write a letter to a member of staff who helps you

Hold doors open for each other

Offer to play with somebody who is lonely

Community Kindness:

Reuse plastic bottles- why not turn them into bird feeders for the garden?

Help an elderly neighbour take their bins out

Donate clothes or toys to a charity

Write a thank you card to people who keep us safe

Plant some wildlife friendly flowers

Self Kindness:

Make a journal and fill it with positive things about yourself

Think about your hopes, dreams and goals

Make a mood board to reflect your feelings

Take some time to rest and relax

Have a treat (but not too many!)

Family Kindness:

Tidy your bedroom without being asked to

Bring your family breakfast in bed

Play a board game with your family instead of time on your console/device

Call or send a letter to a family member you haven’t seen for a long time

Ninja Kindness:

Write an encouraging letter or make a picture for somebody you know and post it through their letterbox (don’t put your name on it!)

Save a little pocket money each week and donate it to charity

Leave a bunch of flowers or some homemade cake on a neighbour’s doorstep

Clear up somebody else’s mess without them knowing

 Please remember to be safe, especially when being kind in your community.
