Buddies is a special partnership between Reception and Year 6 children. Each child in Reception has a Year 6 buddy but often the Reception child may have two buddies from Year 6.
The children spend time together on a Friday afternoon either in free play or doing an activity related to the weeks learning. They also sit together in assembly on a Friday aftenoon. During the year they spend Enviro Day doing activities together and also go on one special outing. The Year 6 class also always arrange a special surprise close to Christmas for the whole class.
The children develop a strong bond and the confidence it gives them all is most valuable.
