I scream, you scream…

Today we were lucky enough to have an ice cream van come onto our field! We all got an ice cream and it was a fantastic way to celebrate our last day at Avenue.

Thank you to Mrs Schmitz for organising it for us! x

We hope you enjoyed your last day at Avenue and we are very excited for everything that the future has in store for you all. Best wishes and good luck for September, we will be thinking of you!

Foundation Home Learning – 17th July 2020

Religious Education – The Good Samaritan

Link to United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 

UNCRC: Article 14 (freedom of thought, belief and religion) Every child has the right to think and believe what they choose and also to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Governments must respect the rights and responsibilities of parents to guide their child as they grow up. 

It is important that we help others, show forgiveness and show acts of kindness, especially during these difficult times. We need to show kindness to everyone (while keeping ourselves safe), even those we don’t always get along with. We can show kindness by treating each other with love and respect, without expecting anything in return. The term â€˜Good Samaritan’ today refers to a person who helps others in a random act of kindness. It originated from the Parable of the Good Samaritan, a story that is very familiar to Christians. Please share ‘The Good Samaritan’ story with your child.

Can you answer and complete the following: 

  1. What does the story teach us? (It’s easy to be kind to your family and friends but we should show kindness to everyone, even those who we do not get along with) 
  2. Have you ever needed help? 
  3. Can you write down what they did to help you? 
  4. What does it mean to be kind? 
  5. What does generosity mean?  
  6. Can write about a time where you have helped someone? Think about what you did to help, how it made the person feel and how it made you feel.  
  7. Would you only help your friends or would you help anyone who needed help? 

Have a look at the following video about acts of kindness 

  1. What acts of kindness did you see in the video?  
  2. Why did the images in the video change from black and white to colour? 
  3. What can you do to be kind?  

Keep a diary to show how you have completed different acts of kindness.

Here are some ideas of random acts of kindness to help you: 

  • Say something nice 
  • Hold the door open for someone 
  • Volunteer to do a chore at home 
  • Ask how somebody is feeling today 
  • Raise money for charity 
  • Volunteer to pick up litter (with your grown up) 
  • Donate old clothes, toys and books to others 
  • Send a thank you note 
  • Give up your seat for someone who needs it.  
  • Smile!
