The ReadingZone Bookclub provides a programme of free virtual author events aimed at KS1 and KS2 pupils.
Schools can sign up to hear top children’s authors introduce their latest book and talk about the inspiration for their writing. Some events also include the opportunity for pupils to put their own questions to the author. There are also events to tie in with key dates in the literacy calendar such as National Poetry Day and Non-fiction November.
Bookclub events are streamed live via Zoom during the school day and last approximately 45 minutes.
