Reading Teachers, Reading Pupils
Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils
The Reader is delighted to be working with Cheltenham Festivals in delivering the Festivals’ network of teacher book groups in the North West.
Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils is a Cheltenham Festivals programme delivered in partnership with like-minded organisations across the UK including Bradford Literature Festival, Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), Just Imagine, National Literacy Trust, KEAP (The Writers’ Block), Peters, Seven Stories and the National Centre for Children's Books.
Set up in 2016, the national network of teachers reading groups aims to inspire reading for pleasure because research shows that children who read for pleasure experience high levels of wellbeing, engage in learning and are successful in life.
The Reader will be hosting a primary RTRP programme which is open to all Key Stage 2 teachers. As the selected novels are most appropriate for Year 5/6 pupils, priority is given to teachers of these year groups. To include as many schools as possible, places are limited to two teachers per school.
All sessions will be led by members of our team at The Reader. The group is FREE to attend, and the shared resources are distributed throughout the year along with two copies of each of the 5 titles.
Applications for the next academic year opens on Tuesday 9 June 2020.
