Creating a reading pathway
This first session will focus on how to ensure there is a rigorous and sequential approach to reading across your school, which develops pupils’ fluency, comprehension and enjoyment of reading.
This introductory session will provide an overview of how to create a reading pathway, which is not limited to simply phonics sessions or reading lessons but a holistic approach to reading and which shows the journey of a child as a reader throughout your school.
An example of a reading pathway will be shared with a range of recommended resources to support, leaving plenty of time to talk children’s books because in order to effectively develop a love for reading, we all need to have an excellent knowledge of children’s literature!
All further sessions will be informed by the needs of the group during this sessio
