Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies

As part of World Book Week at Parklands, the children in year 6 yesterday buddied up with the children in Year 1 to share books and stories. Each Year 1 child had a Year 6 buddy and chose a picture book to read together, they took it in turns to read to each other, with the Year 6 buddies offering lots of support and encouragement. Both groups of children loved spending time together, they were engaged and enthralled in a love of reading, so much so that some of the Year 1 children took their books out onto the playground at break time to finish them. The session was such a success that everybody decided we should do it again and soon!
