Year 2 went to Tesco to give out gifts of daffodils to ladies who were shopping. We greeted the ladies as they came into the store with a smile and a "Happy Mother's Day." They were very surprised and we certainly cheered up a lot of people.
It really showed us that we have the power to cheer others up by showing small acts of kindness and not expecting anything in return - it makes us feel good too!
One lady wrote to us and sent us this poem.
For every flower has something to give
Or it may be just something to share,
It may not be much, but may mean a great deal
to someone, sometime, somewhere.
Here are some of the messages we have received!
On visiting Tesco this morning one of your pupils approached me to wish me a happy Mothers Day and hand me a daffodil.
I just wanted to thank you for this very touching gesture which absolutely made my day. All the young children there looked so smart in their uniforms and were very well behaved; a credit both to their parents and to the school.
A lovely start to the day please thank everyone involved.
My young man was lucky to escape a big hug from an elderly lady - I resisted with difficulty.

I have just been shopping in Tesco (Seacroft) and wanted to send a message to the school to say how lovely it was to receive a daffodil for Mother's Day. The children smiled so beautifully and were so enthusiastic it could only brighten your day. What a wonderful positive message to send and encourage your children to do.
Thanks so much

I would like to thank you and your beautiful pupils, for the thoughtful gift of a daffodil, for Mother’s Day, that the pupils handed out at Tesco’s Seacroft, this morning, with a beautiful wish to have a Happy Mother's Day. I had just been to a hospital appointment, this young man cheered me up so much, with the gesture and wish that I have a happy Mother’s Day. Being mother to 6 and grandmother to 12, I have had Mother’s Day wishes for almost 50 years, but none have been as lovely as this one. Thank you to you and your pupils you made my day. Winnie

Just wanted to say how lovely it was to receive a daffodil from your pupils today for Mothers day. Such a simple gesture but left me smiling all day. Thankyou , April
A big thank you for the daffodil I had presented to me as I walked into Tesco this morning. It was a lovely surprise. I am lucky enough to be a mum and a grandmother, but for anyone who has not had that privilege it would have brightened their day. I hope all your children have a lovely day on Sunday with their families. Sincerely, Gill
