Sessions for pupils/students Secondary
Engage your pupils with something different! Our experienced team can visit your school to deliver a variety of sessions, which can be tailored to the needs of your school, and ability level of your students. Booktalking enthuses children to pick up a book and read. We choose snippets of books and tempting teasers that relate to children of today, leading to more reading for pleasure and greater pupil achievement. With a selection of books from different genres, we get them reading and the books will fly off the shelves! For every hour of sessions, up to 40 related books will be loaned to the school, for a period of 12 weeks following the sessions.
1 booktalking session is 2 hours
To be booked as a 2-hour block; normally this is divided into 4 x 30-minute booktalks delivered to one class of up to 30 pupils at a time.
Booktalking can also be booked by the hour through our pay as you go system. Please contact us for costs per hour.
Here’s a taster video of the sessions we’ve been providing to schools during the Coronavirus outbreak:
"I thought it was excellent. Cassie engaged the children. Proof was in the queues for the library at lunch with kids wanting the books that were highlighted."
