Reading Buddies

Across the school, children from older year groups go to a younger class to read with them.┬áThis helps the younger children to develop confidence in reading aloud and hopefully inspires them to become independent readers as they like to emulate their older peers. The older children are encouraged to develop their enquiry skills as they are challenged to ask searching questions about their buddies’ books.

The system also helps to further foster the community spirit we have at Bourn, building strong links between different year groups.
