Year 6 – Meeting our Buddies
On Friday 10th September, the day had finally come for Year 6 to meet their Reception Buddies! The children were so excited and could hardly contain themselves when they heard the news. We decided to hold a Forest School morning, where the Reception and Year 6 children could get to know each other and play games, create dens, swing in the hammocks and gossip to their heart’s content. We also had a fire, where the children enjoyed campfire toast together.
The children bonded instantly and it was so wonderful to see them have fun in the outdoors. The Year 6’s gave the Receptions a guided tour of our Forest School area, led games and played so kindly and patiently with them. We plan on the Year 6’s and Reception meeting up every week to continue building this special bond.
