Picture Book Club

Book Clubs in Schools now have a new programme for primary schools – Picture Book Club.

Taking our peer-led book club model we have created resources for picture books for Year 5 to share with Year 1. The simple activity booklet encourages parents to re-read the books with their children and to visit their local library to find a copy to read and share, encouraging the links between schools and the libraries.

The aim of the Picture Book Club is to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Increased confidence of Y5s as readers
  • Opportunity for Y5s to model reading
  • Reinforce a reading for pleasure culture throughout the school
  • Inspire the younger pupils to be readers
  • Opportunity for Y1 pupils to be read to more regularly and experience a wider range of stories (particularly for those who might not be read to at home)
  • A space for Y1 and Y5 pupils to talk about picture books on a one to one or small group basis and develop their ‘book talk’

We refresh the books each term and there are 15 books in a pack.
