FS2 The Giving Tree

This term we are celebrating kindness – one of our core values. We listened to a magical story where a tree gives its fruit, branches, trunk and eventually stump to one little boy throughout his life with nothing in return. It prompted a P4C discussion about what kindness is and got children thinking about how we show kindness towards others. As a result, each child made their own wood cookie to share with someone important to them. The children took turns in using the bow saw and palm drill so their wood cookies could be hung. They decorated them individually before giving them away.
