Trafford TRG: an update from Vicki Johnson and Wendi Swann

The Trafford Primary TRG launched again in October, bringing a new cohort of teachers, headteachers and librarians together to explore the Reading for Pleasure agenda. We were delighted to use the TRG launch materials in a virtual reading conference with Joseph Coelho and Alex Quigley, where we presented to school and subject leaders about the importance of developing Reading for Pleasure pedagogy. Our group has now expanded from 12 members to 20 this year. We started our first session by looking at the book, “The Visitor” by Antje Damm and started to consider gaps in our current practice and ways to move forward, especially in light of The Reading Framework.
