The Junior Infants and 6th class children have began 'Reading Buddies'. This is where a Junior Infant child has be allocated a 6th class 'Reading Buddy'. They both spend 20 minutes each morning on this activity. This begins with the juniors reading their little individual readers and sight word cards to their 6th class 'buddy'. On completing this the 6th class child then reads a book they have prepared the day before (book titles include The Grufflo, Stick Man, Rumble in the Jungle, Giraffe's Can't Dance and many many more).
This reading initiative has got off to a great start and is being enjoyed by both little and 'big' children!!!
