On Tuesday morning, Reception climbed the 23 stone stairs to Year 5, where they were greeted with warm smiles and excited waves. Each Reception child was paired with a Year 5 buddy and they all settled down to read. It was a joy to watch as the Year 5 children read enthusiastically to their new friends, relishing each word. Once stories were over, it was time for a little singsong and a chance to share favourite nursery rhymes. All of the children agreed that it was a wonderful occasion and were very keen to see each other again.
