Buddies

Posted by neridakiprotich


Each Year 1 class is fortunate to have a buddy Year 6 class. Learning with our Year 6 buddies strengthens our school community, helping the year 1 learners to feel safe, cared for and supported in a variety of learning experiences.

The two classes meet regularly to work together, share ideas, learn and play. Interactions with older students have the benefits of developing language and social skills. Each class attends their buddy class assembly. Buddy classes have recently helped the Year 1 children record their ideas on reading in preparation for our current inquiry into our learning community.
