Reception Meet Their Year 6 Buddies
A valued and important tradition here at Crescent is for the Year 6 children to buddy with a Reception child to support them through their first year at school.
The Year 6s help the Reception children settle into school, helping them with their lunch, showing good manners, encouraging them in their play (once they are trained as play leaders) and generally being friendly, helpful and welcoming.
Last week, the Reception and Year 6 children met their new buddies for the first time and enjoyed some bonding time.
It’s a rite of passage for the Year 6 children here at Crescent, an opportunity for them to give back to their school community and we know they will all enjoy playing their part in this precious tradition.
