Powerpoint outlining different things we can do to be kind to one another - includes pictures of different acts and includes a quick group brainstorm slide at the end. Great for encouraging thoughtfulness and kindness in the classroom and at home/in public
An assembly for all year groups
This requires you to get all staff present in the assembly to be involved and know what RAOK is and be able to give a very , very small example
It involves a video clip of about 3 minutes and then some more examples
It involves a minutes thought for students at the end.
Random Acts of Kindness Stickers.
I have these as part of a display in my classroom for students to take as and when needed to reward a colleague for their help or support or to act as an act in itself.
A freer version of peer assessment as it is not dictated by me when they are used.
Instead of just me praising a student for helping someone else, now that student can thank them.
Pupils use the Spanish horoscopes to match the English names to the descriptions (I put them on card) The powerpoint just introduces the activity. Good for older learners to extend personality vocabulary
End of year quiz to use with all secondary year groups and classes, maybe years 5 and 6 too.
Quiz contains celebrity mash up, current years news questions, movies, general knowledge and music and theme tunes round.
Questions, Answers and MUSIC all contained in one easy to follow PowerPoint. Very easy to use, minimal work from the teacher:)
Pupils loved it, enjoy and have a great summer break.

It's always nice to give your students something Christmassy to work towards as it gets closer. I've updated this resource due to it's popularity. This 10 page booklet can be printed in colour or black and white. Students can work through the different activities suggested in one go or once a week. I've used these resources with different ages but it would work best for lower secondary or primary school. The resources tell the Christmas story, look into traditions today and explore how Christmas was celebrated in the Tudor and Medieval period. The additional Powerpoint may also be used for other activites. Comments are appreciated. Images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for reuse".
