Promote kindness in your classroom using our resource to explore feelings and emotions and how pupils can help their classmates by showing that they care.

Pupils will have the opportunity to discuss a range of situations in school and how these can be overcome by showing compassion and kindness to others. They will read a variety of letters to an Agony Aunt and write replies showing how the issues raised could be solved.

The resource could be used on World Kindness Day or during Anti Bullying Week in November, or at any time in the school year when a sprinkling of kindness may be needed.

The resources will:

  • Inspire pupils to show kindness to others.
  • Provide opportunities to discuss why it is always important to be kind.
  • Develop pupils understanding of their feelings and emotions and how others may be feeling in familiar situations.

This pack includes:

  • Feelings and Emotions Vocabulary Cards
    PDF word cards that can be displayed in the classroom to develop pupils vocabulary
  • ‘Dear Agony Aunt’ Text
    A PDF copy of the text used as a prompt for discussion, also displayed on the teaching slides
  • Agony Aunt Letters
    Four letters to an Agony Aunt for pupils to respond to
  • Themed Writing Paper
    A PDF sheet for pupils to complete their final writing task on.
  • Teaching Slides
    These can be used to guide pupils through the activities and prompt discussion.
  • Teacher’s Notes
    Guidance on how to use the resource is given, divided into three smaller activities. Additional activities are also suggested.
