Have you Filled a Bucket Today?

The children in Class IH have been learning about the joy of giving and receiving. The book ‘Have you filled a bucket today?’ written by Carol McCloud has been the inspiration for a new class initiative. Carol believed that everyone is born with an invisible bucket. You can’t see the bucket, but it is there. The bucket holds our good thoughts and our good feelings. When you make someone feel special, you are filling a bucket. 1H have all been bucket fillers this week. They have been trying to spot their classmates doing kind and caring things for others. When they notice something, they fill that person’s bucket. Mrs Hewitt spotted Naomi O helping to zip up someone’s coat, and Mrs Anstey spotted Toby T being very helpful in the Dining Room. Happy bucket filling!
