Buddy Reading / Writing
Buddy reading and writing is a system by which younger classes are paired with older ones and a twice a week session takes place as a form of peer tutoring.
Generally the older children come down to the classrooms of the younger ones for a half-hour session. Each child is allocated a buddy to read or write with consistently. In this way the children are given a chance to bond with each other and it also affords an opportunity for the older children to see the progression in the younger counterparts. The sessions are very enjoyable for all the children.
