Reading for Pleasure: the thread that connects. Reading for pleasure is a social justice issue. International evidence indicates it offers cognitive, social and emotional benefits, helping children make connections with each other, their teachers, their families and the wider world. This conference will help you enrich your repertoire of children’s texts and create reading communities that connect and support young readers. The author Hilary McKay will join us, Farrar Serroukh from CLPE and Norfolk Children’s Book Centre bookshop! Workshops will be led by OU/UKLA Teachers’ Reading Group members offering new ideas based on their research-informed practice.
