Year 5 Buddies
Year 5 children are paired with Year 2 children and act as mentors to the younger pupils helping them to prepare for their transition into Year 3.
Over the course of the year the Year 5 children will read to and play with their buddies. They also tour the Prep department with the Year 2 children and answer their questions, thus reassuring them about the transition into Year 3. This provides opportunities for the children to offer support and show empathy as well as acting as a good role model.
