One of the loveliest things we do in Prep is “Buddy Time”. Once a fortnight, or so, Year 6 classes come to each Prep class for a visit.
The older children come to read books, play games and can help the younger ones with tricky craft activities. The children are paired with the same buddy for the year and hopefully make a special connection, that will see a friendship develop for many years.
It is also very nice for the young ones to see a friendly face at school events when all of the Primary School get together, or when they visit the library at lunchtime.
Some of the Year 6 children used to be in Prep at GCC (which is also very special for them to reminisce about “the good ol’ days” in Prep.)
