Book Talk cards
Whether you’re an NQT, have changed year groups, you're not an English subject lead, or perhaps you have the same class for another year, don’t miss our team’s downloadable book talk cards. They're perfect for Drop Everything and Read (DEAR), as a once-a-week alternative to daily reading sessions, or as a focus text for whole class reading time.
Based on some of 2023's most exciting new reads, these printable PDFs feature discussion points and further reading suggestions. They cover a range of recommended new titles selected specifically to appeal to each year group and to help you support your pupils in generating the wider discussion around books.
Download the collection here to share with your colleagues, or choose your year group below. We'll be adding new Book Talk cards every month, so don't forget to check this page regularly.
