World Smile Day 2023
We took part in lots of activities that make us smile throughout the day – for example making Smile Day bunting and Smile Day posters which we will use to brighten up our school entrance areas and show how important kindness is to us all at Longroyde.
We encouraged year groups to carry out planned acts of kindness for our school and local community, for example older year groups organised games for the younger children in school. Children decided in class who their “Smashing Smiler” certificate recipients were. Adults chose the members of their class who make most people smile and they were rewarded with a little smiley something.
We asked for a voluntary £1 donation this year, we will donate monies raised to a worthwhile charity.
We invited parents and carers to send Smiley messages for us to post on our website blog to record what it is about your child that makes you smile, we loved reading them all - see below.
We wish everyone in our school community a Happy Smile Day!
