Our Year 6 children have had the opportunity to meet with their Reception Buddies. Each child is paired up with a younger peer for the year and will get the opportunity to be their role model throughout their time in Year 6. The children got the opportunity to read with eachother, help the younger children with their learning through play and also get to know them in their classroom. All of the children really enjoyed their first meetings and cannot wait for more opportunities to do things with their buddy. 

Reception started the year looking at ‘How I am Special.’ A topic all about them. They explored what made them special, made mosaics of themselves and described members of their families. They also did lots of talking about their interests and things they enjoy in school and at home. Click the link below to see the overview of the topic and see all areas of the curriculum covered.
