Reception & Year 6 buddies

Written by Mrs Williams

Last Thursday saw the return of the buddy system between Year 6 and Reception pupils. The children were matched with a buddy and spent half an hour sharing stories together and getting to know each other. Some stayed in Reception classroom, others went into the hall.

Both age groups thoroughly enjoyed the short time they spent together and are looking forward to repeating it on a weekly basis.

The School Council have been keen to get this scheme up and running and should be proud of their perseverance. The next stage will involve the current Year 5 children meeting next year’s Reception children when they begin their visits to school in the summer term so that the buddy system can begin straight away at the beginning of the school year.

    This is a lovely activity and clearly loved by both age groups. Alfie (Yr 6) told me all about this and is obviously loving it!
