Teddy Bears Picnic with Nursery and Year 5

Buddy systems help to promote friendship and support between older and younger peers. The benefits of a buddy system are twofold – the older children learn to take on responsibility, while the younger children know that they have a special friend they can confidently turn to for support. The Year 5 children joined with the Nursery children for a ‘Teddy Bears Picnic.’ Each child met their new buddy and amazing bonds were already evident.
