P7 and P1 Buddies

In Primary 7 we have the responsibility to help the P1s settle into school. We are their buddies and look after them. It’s important that they feel safe, nurtured and included in our school. We had to show them little things like where their seat was and also help them change into their coat and shoes for going into class and out into the playground.

We help our buddies to build their confidence and help them come out of their shell.  We have all loved working with our buddies and we go down to Primary 1 every Friday to help them with their learning, working on skills like literacy and maths. One of our favourite things to do with our buddies is read with them. We have to be really expressive when we tell a story to keep them interested. Then we use our Talking Round Corners questioning skills to ask them about the story we just read.

Here are a few photos of us helping our buddies to learn outside using chalk!
