The school has also set up a new project encouraging children to make a card or write a letter to a friend, family member or someone in the community.

The project will continue into the summer holidays as the “Kindness Challenge” where the children will be encouraged to offer to clean cars, do gardening, bake cakes for key workers and visit and help their neighbours.
