Just Imagine will be running the Cheltenham Festivals East region UKS2 ‘Reading Teachers=Reading Pupils’ book group for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils (RTRP) 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, Kernow Education Arts Partnership (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 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 are successful in life.
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.
