It’s becoming increasingly popular to use this time of year for reflection and there are plenty of options for staff and students to have a more thoughtful advent this year.

Whole School Advent Calendars
The Power of Kindness calendar from @BritishRedCross helps children (aged 7 to 11) learn about and carry out kind acts during the month of December. Each day is linked to a short kindness activity that can be used at the start of the day, or as an energiser during the day, with each activity lasting approximately ten minutes.
