This could be the older child reading to them or perhaps even just listening to the young child read.
Class 4I and Reception ‘Cheetahs’ are one such paired class, and they spent time last week working with each other, sharing mutual benefits.
For the older children, this is a great opportunity to be a mentor and develop a range of skills, whilst the younger children gain confidence of sharing their growing vocabulary with others.
As one child from 4I said, ‘I really enjoy it as I get to be like the teacher!’
