Buddy day in P2/3 and 6/7 👦🏻👱🏻‍♀️⛵️📚🎨

30th May 2019

What a great day was had in the P2/3 classroom today. We were so lucky to have a buddy come and work with us from the P6/7 class. We worked together recreating Van Gogh’s seascape with our buddies helping us to add detail using oil pastels. We then used our buddies to help mentor the younger children with their reading which was great fun for the little ones but rewarding for the older mentors. To finish our day the children worked in mixed-age pairs to design a boat that could float and carry a light load. The boys and girls worked together on the design, the creation, the presentation and the testing of their boats. The evaluation element was very important as we all learned how to improve our work going forward. P2/3 can’t wait to do this again!
