Peters is delighted to be working with Cheltenham Festivals in delivering the festivals’ network of teacher book groups in the West Midlands.
Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils is a Cheltenham Festivals programme delivered in partnership with like-minded organisations across the UK, including Books Council of Wales, Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), English and Media Centre, National Literacy Trust, National Centre for Writing, Bradford Literature Festival, KEAP (The Writers’ Block), Seven Stories the National Centre for Children’s Books, The Reader, The Story Museum and Wigtown Festival Company.
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 well-being, engage in learning and are successful in life.
Peters will be hosting a primary RTRP programme that 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 expert librarian and curriculum specialists team at Peters. The group is FREE to attend, and the shared resources are distributed throughout the year along with two copies of each of the five titles.
