Buddying Up with Year 5

At Forest Park, we utilise the buddy system in our Early Years classes; Pre-Prep with Year 5 and Reception with Year 6.  The children benefit immensely from being or having a role model. They engage in positive shared experiences during the course of the year. Through this, children learn the values: caring for others, friendliness, respect, valuing difference, including others and responsibility. 

This week the Pre-Prep children were introduced to their new Year 5 buddies and enjoyed an afternoon of crafts together.

Although the children may not be aware of the philosophy behind the system, they feel the benefits and the smiles we see when they are engaged in an activity together are priceless.
