Year 6 and Reception enjoy their Buddy Afternoon

Elmhurst School for Boys

27th February 2014

Year 6 recently spent a fun-filled afternoon with their buddies in Reception, playing games and reading together.

Before starting school in September, each child in Reception is paired up with a Year 6 boy who will then be their buddy throughout their time in Reception. The Year 6 buddies all write a letter to the Reception boys over the summer holidays, introducing themselves and providing a photo, so that the Reception children know who they are.

Buddy lunches are organised in school every fortnight, allowing Reception pupils and their Year 6 buddies to sit together for lunch and then play together in the playground.

On the last day before half term, Reception had a special visit from their buddies. The boys in Reception thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon. Read some of their comments below:

“I have two buddies and they played dominoes with me. But, my favourite part was when I played outside with my buddies because when I played on the scooter, they tried to catch me” Rishi

“I played snakes and ladders with my Buddy Krishan and it was fun. We went outside to play hide and seek and my buddy couldn’t find me, so I was the winner!” Mikaeel

“I played crocodiles with my buddy, with the puppets. I liked it when my buddy read a book to me called Alien school” Rohan

“I played in the builder’s site with my buddy and it was lots of fun. We played snakes and ladders too but I don’t know who won” Rayan
