Norfolk School Library Service (SLS) supports Children’s University by encouraging Reading for Pleasure in children’s free time.
Norfolk SLS can run bespoke Reading Groups during the school day for individual primary schools or a cluster of schools. These reading groups
are particularly effective for transition, for Year 6 children from a cluster to meet each other, for example, at the cluster high school.
How the reading group works
There are two models:
- Chatterbooks model. See www.readingagency.org.uk/children/quick-guides/chatterbooks
Children of all abilities choose a book to read at home from a selection of books around a theme (books provided by SLS). When
the reading group meets children discuss their book and enjoy creative activities together (e.g. drama/games/art) based on the
- Single book model. Children of a similar age/ability all read the same novel at home (novel is chosen by SLS, bought by school).
When the reading group meets children take part in a quiz on the book, creative activities (e.g drama/games/art) and discussion all
based on the book.
Schools pay for these reading groups by purchasing tokens from Services for Schools
