Year 6 and Reception Buddies

Posted on October 16 2015

Last Thursday, the Year 6 children spent the afternoon in the Reception classroom with their buddies.  They had a lovely time making spooky models out of clay and creating Halloween pictures using a variety of media.

The buddy system is an important part of school life.  It allows older children to take on some responsibility, whilst giving younger children someone they can look to for support.  It promotes friendship and support between older and younger peers which fosters a sense of whole-school community.

It was wonderful to see the older children take a supporting role, allowing the Reception children to flourish during the craft activities.

A wonderful afternoon was had by all.
