What a lovely bunch of talented TRG leaders I had the privilege to work with at Macclesfield! Our working lunch went well with leaders meeting their mentors, sharing their group’s strengths and challenges and discussing how we balance meetings most effectively.
While everyone recognised the power of Book Blether, leaders wanted to prioritise the research informed use of literature and nonfiction in their sessions.
We also discussed the challenges of documenting children’s subtle identity shifts as they become more interested in reading. I am working on some guidance notes to support tracking children’s progress- so watch this space!
