13.11.17 - Anti- Bullying Day. Today we have looked at how to grow positive relationships and spread kindness. We wrote a list of 10 random acts of kindness that we'd like to do. We also wrote positive postcards to somebody in our class and then delivered that postcard to them. The children felt very happy hearing all the good things! We also looked at music and fashion through the years.
