Some of this year’s Y5 children in their Maypole costumes

This week the Y5 children all wrote to their buddies, who will be starting St Mary’s in September, to invite them to the Maypole Dancing. Being a buddy is one of the great privileges of being in Y6 and something St Mary’s children anticipate with great excitement. Meeting your buddy, and forging a new friendship is a rite of passage and a milestoneY5 look forward to enormously. When the new Reception class starts in September their Y6 buddy will enjoy lunch with them, take them to assembly and play with them each day. This helps the new children settle in and make friendships across the whole school and it also teaches the Y6 children the importance of looking out for the younger children and an appreciation and understanding of the challenges of starting a new school!
