In 7 Rebecca, we are a buddy class with a grade 3 class with their teacher Jess. Jess was a year 6 teacher last year, so lots of us know her very well.
One of the first things we did with our buddy class was get to know them by creating a paper chain where we wrote down all of the things that we had in common with our buddy.
The second activity we did together was to create a silly story. A silly story is a story where one person writes a sentence of a story, then only gives their partner the last word of their sentence. Their partner then has to write the next sentence, even though they do not really know what the first sentence is about! It had some very funny results!
Here is one of the silly stories we created. Matilda and Chantelle used PicCollage on the iPad to publish their story.
