Halesowen TRG: an update from Hannah Grace

Several members of the TRG reconnected virtually in October to share our ongoing work to promote Reading for Pleasure in schools.  The session was enthusiastic and uplifting with plenty of blether! We explored the excellent OU Book Chat resources and videos and gathered our own ideas for book talk including – 'book battles' in KS3 lessons, book buddies connecting KS1 and KS2 students and book recommendation slips to encourage a written form of book talk. We will meet again in December to celebrate successes from the year and look ahead to 2021.
