|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
The benefits of Reading for Pleasure, a strong focus in the New Curriculum in raising standards and a focus for Ofsted inspections too, are numerous. Pupils who read are more likely to succeed; a Reading for Pleasure approach through creating an immersive and engaging environment within the classroom and the school is can have a profound effect on building reading communities and narrowing the gap between reading abilities. A recent Ofsted report states that reading makes a difference and that reading for pleasure makes the most. Your classroom should be the hub for celebrating this. Our seminar offers exciting ideas on how to approach this.
Through the use of the Story Museum experts, we will explore different approaches that we can take to ensure that you understand the theory behind a positive reading environment but also different ways that the classroom can be used to engage and pull reluctant readers into the world of books.
Ideal for: KS1 & KS2 teachers who are looking to explore the Reading for Pleasure initiative, or looking to improve positive attitudes to reading through the reading environment.
