In Year 5 we have worked with children in Year 2 to be reading buddies. We listened to the Year 2 children read and then asked them questions about their books. We were impressed with their fluent reading and great ability to answer questions!

Quotes from the children…

  • ‘Having a reading buddy is all about learning more…’
  • ‘Having someone to read with is exciting and challenging for the reader and it helps them get better’
  • ‘Having a reading buddy is great because we can help the children apply their phonics in books’
  • ‘Reading buddies are awesome!’
