Without fail, the most exciting part of moving to Year 5 is having a buddy! Every year the children say that this is what they are looking forward to the most. So it was with great anticipation that the children waited to find out their buddy in Reception. During our first visit to Reception, the children played with their buddies and enjoyed a story together.
At Brabyns great importance is placed on the relationships that the children form with all members of the community, and it is one of the many ways we strive to achieve our aim of being a very nurturing family.
The buddy system helps our younger children to adapt to the larger environment of the school, particularly at playtime, as they know they have an older friend to help them out. The older children benefit from the relationship by having responsibility, and of course they find it fun!
