Many people think that children naturally develop kindness and empathy, so it might be assumed that time spent focusing on those traits would be better spent on studying math, practicing the piano, or playing basketball.
Indeed, these two traits do often develop without any special attention paid to them.
Since 2007, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of school teachers by providing engaging resources and games that save time and deliver results.
We will give out a termly homework sheet at the beginning of each term.
There are many strategies for teaching kindness—far too many to include them all here—but below are six solid strategies to start with (Proud to be Primary, 2017).
Children (and adults) are more likely to be engaged and involved in something they helped create or develop.
Any additional pieces of homework will be posted below, including Friday topic questions.
As well as following the timetable above, the children are encouraged to read regularly at home and practise their times tables and spellings as often as possible.
This will include all the activities that the children will need for the term.
It will be a mixture of work from books, and tasks to prepare or support in school learning.
