Join the CLPE-Cheltenham Festivals' Reading Teachers=Reading Pupils book group
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, KEAP (The Writers’ Block), National Literacy Trust, Peters, Seven Stories the National Centre for Children's Books and The Reader.
Set up in 2016, the national network of teachers 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, space and inspiration to (re-)engage with children’s books and the stimulus to foster reading for pleasure within their classrooms.
Commencing in Autumn 2021, we will be hosting a series of seven sessions for primary teachers at our Centre in Central London. Dates are to be confirmed.
All sessions will be led by members of our expert teaching team at the CLPE, and will run from 4.30-6.00pm apart from Sharing Day which will start at 1:00pm and finish at 6:00pm.
All teachers who register will be the first to know once dates are confirmed and registration via the Cheltenham Festivals' website opens.
This programme is supported by Arts Council England, Thirty Percy, the Summerfield Charitable Trust and the Unwin Charitable Trust.
