Currently, in Year 4, we are very excited to begin trialling Horsenden Reading Buddies, a scheme in which older children spend time reading to and with younger children. Beginning 20 February, a variety of children from each Year 4 class will be taking turns to read with Reception and Nursery children. The benefits of children of different ages reading together have been very well documented over the years and we look forward to seeing children of different ages coming together and enjoying books. Keep an eye out for the special Horsenden Reading Buddies stickers, which younger children will wear when they have spent time reading with an older Buddy. If you would like more information about the scheme, please send an email to email@example.com.
