West Felton Primary School is taking part in a 40 acts of kindness challenge for Lent.

40acts asks the question: what if Lent could be about more than just giving stuff up? What if it could be a time of increased kindness as well as spiritual discipline?

With this in mind, West Felton CofE Primary School launched the 40 acts of kindness for Lent on Wednesday, February 14.

Each child will receive a challenge card to complete by Thursday, March 29, on the card are 40 challenge; one for each day of Lent.

Some of the 40 Acts include things like be the first to say sorry to someone, ask somebody in the class what they most enjoyed about the day, play with a child from another year group, share your best joke today, look out for someone who is sad today and find a way to cheer them up.

Each child who completes the challenge will receive a certificate and kindness token in Golden Assembly.
