This week has been very exciting as we have been training our new Playground Buddies!
Our Playground Buddy scheme plays an important part in creating a safe, friendly, happy and peaceful environment for children during lunch times. Their role is to help and support the lunch time supervisors to ensure the children in the infants are safe and happy.
Year 5 children have been selected to be Playground Buddies this year and this week they met with Year 1 children to teach them some exciting new games to play at lunch times.
What is the role of a Playground Buddy?
To help all children to play cooperatively with each other
Teach children to play games
To be a good listener when another child would like to talk
Report any unkind things you see to an adult
Be role models for the younger children
The Buddies will start their role next week. We can’t wait to see them in action on the infant playground!
