Reception and Year 5 Buddies!

 


This week, Reception welcomed their ‘Year 5 Buddies’ to their classroom for the first time. Now Reception children have settled into Primrose Lane school life, our wonderful Year 5 children offer a generous, helping hand to settle them in further. This is one of the responsibilities expected by a Year 5 child at the beginning of the year, which they always look forward to! In WORKING TOGETHER, they become better people. Year 5 become role models, leaders and supportive of their new younger friends. The Reception learn lots of skills and behaviours from their role models, but teach Year 5 about empathy, tolerance and patience, just by being their lovely selves!

The role of the Year 5 child is important to make their Reception Buddy feel comfortable, learn how to make new friends, play, feel safe and become more independent. They have got to know each other this week, eaten together and played together outside. As you can see, the Year 5 children model how to behave in the dining area when eating at school, as well as support their Buddies with cutting food and their manners. Reception children and staff would like to thank Year 5 for being such fantastic buddies, the effort and care are really appreciated! We are sure these relationships will continue to blossom over the coming year.
