Reading buddies are Year 6 children that go to Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 and they listen to children read.
After they do that they will write a positive comment in their reading diaries. This normally occurs on a Monday and Wednesday when there are whole school assemblies. There is normally 1 Year 6 child from each class that goes down to Reception-Year 5 but there can be more than 1 if needed.
All the children enjoy this - the older ones like the responsibility, and the younger ones enjoy sharing their books.
