NEW and updated for 2019 - Chatterbooks
Schools Library Service are pleased to offer Chatterbooks reading groups package to schools for KS2 pupils
Chatterbooks is a nationally recognised network of children’s reading groups co-ordinated by The Reading Agency and help children build a lifelong reading habit. Because everything changes when we read.
We offer a package to easily set up a successful reading group in school. This includes resources and activities, support and guidance, and of course a great selection of books to enjoy.
> Book bag for 10 children including a reading diary, pen, bookmark and wristband
> Group leaders toolkit including a Chatterbooks handbook
> Downloadable themed session plans and activity ideas
> An initial visit from a member of the SLS team to provide a short training session for school staff
> Loan of up to 6 themed book boxes of your choice from a selection of different themes
Each box will contain 25 quality books that will inspire children to read and enjoy
Chatterbooks is very flexible – perhaps you want to encourage a group of reluctant readers, or to develop keen readers – or both? Chatterbooks is designed to encourage children to have fun with books, whatever their ability, and provides a perfect setting for reading for pleasure.
What does it cost?
The cost is £95 per year for subscribing schools and £125 for non-subscribing schools.
The Chatterbooks offer is open to all schools on a first-come first-served basis. Available from April 2019.
