Join our new programme!

Picture Book Club is our new book club designed to provide a peer led book club format for primary schools. This is a response to requests for a primary school version of our successful secondary school book clubs.


Picture Book Club will involve Y5s leading small book clubs for Y1s with the aim to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Increase the confidence of Y5s as readers
  • Provide an opportunity for Y5s to model reading
  • Reinforce a reading for pleasure culture throughout the school
  • Inspire the younger pupils to be readers
  • Provide time 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’ and enjoyment of reading

We are currently piloting the programme with a small number of schools and plan to roll it out to more schools in January.  If you would like to be kept up to date with information about the programme, please register below:
