1B and 5B Buddies


​1B and 5B teamed up for their first Buddy Reading last week.

The children loved having someone to read to and to show off their work to, especially their spelling and digraph worksheet.

During Buddy Reading, students were focusing on 'Making Connections' with self, the text and the world, and were discussing how the books reminded them of something they had experienced before.  They also practiced asking questions to 'Activate Prior Knowledge'.

The year 1 students love having a bigger friend to look up to and speak to when walking around our school.  What a wonderful experience!
