A Wellbeing Stars challenge has been launched encouraging primary-age children across England and Wales to come up with and carry out five acts of kindness in a single week.

The challenge tasks five to 11-year-olds with creating a “Wellbeing Week” plan of activity that will help boost the mood of their family, or people they know in their school or community. It will also inspire classroom discussion on feelings and emotions.

Wellbeing Stars is being run by the Premier League Primary Stars education programme, which uses football to engage pupils in learning.

The programme is supported by 110 professional football clubs in their communities, as well as via free online resources.

Teachers and families can download a free resource pack, which includes a Wellbeing Week worksheet where children can write down each of their acts of kindness and reflect on how they have made others feel.

Teachers, parents and guardians are then encouraged to submit children’s completed worksheets by April 19.
