Good Morning Year 2

Let's have great week, only 2 more until half term!


Word of the day: empathy

How many sounds does the word have? Use your magic fingers 

What does it mean? Can you look it up in the dictionary?

Why might we need empathy in life?


Philosophical question: Can kindness change the world?

Miss Wilson: I think kindness is contagious - if you do one act of kindness for someone then they are more likely to act kindly  to someone else and it has a chain effect. So if we keep doing kind things that will spread further and make lots of people act kindly.

Miss Williams: I think that kindness is a great power that we all hold. Sometimes people forget to use kindness but when it is used it can make real changes to people and their world.  Kindness can change someone's day from bad to good and when people feel good about themselves they can achieve great things. So I think yes, kindness can change the world.
Remember to use it. 


Here is your timetable for today, remember we would love to see your work.
