Leyburn TRG – update from Sarah Beveridge

Although the Leyburn TRG is currently quite small, we made up for this last term by arranging a Children’s Book Festival for years 5 and 6 at our local library! Four local schools were involved, including their enthusiastic Reading Teachers: teachers who read and readers who teach. At this event, we shared books, had a giant ‘speed’ book chatter session, took part in a book treasure trail and looked at the shortlisted books for the Children’s Book Award. This is now going to be a regular event as children met each other over books, talked, listened and made new friends. The TRG community has brought together both teachers and children to develop their love of RfP.
