Year 2 and Year 5 Buddies
Year 2 have been getting to know their new Year 5 buddies. When we can, we meet weekly to do a whole variety of activities together. There might be a P.E focus (working on throwing and catching skills), a Thrive focus (accepting and appreciating differences) or an English focus (paired reading); the list of possibilities is endless!
Most recently we came together and played a game which worked on physical fitness and speed as well as the Thrive objective of accepting praise.
In their pairs the children had to do a compliments dash- race across the playground to their sheet of paper and write a compliment about their buddy and race back and pass the pen to their partner. Once the children were out of breath and compliments they came together to read their sheets. It was just gorgeous!
