Join the Peters and Cheltenham Festivals Reading Teachers=Reading Pupils book group

Peters are delighted to be running a Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils book group at Peters in Birmingham in 2019/2020.

Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils is a Cheltenham Festivals programme delivered in partnership with CLPE, Just Imagine, Peters and Seven Stories 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 well-being, engage in learning and are successful in life

The programme aims to give teachers the time and space to share children’s literature in a professional capacity with a view to engendering the rich teaching of literacy.

The programme is open to all Key Stage 2 teachers, but the selected novels will be most appropriate for Year 5/6 pupils so priority will be 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 a member of our children's librarians and curriculum specialists team at Peters.
