Choosing and Using a Broad Range of Children's Literature and Developing Progressive Text Maps
9:15am - 3:15pm
at Little Sutton Primary School, Worcester Lane, Sutton Coldfield, B75 5NL
About this event
A day designed for leaders and teachers alike to consider the range of reading experiences they are providing for children whether through direct instruction (English and reading lessons, books read aloud) or via the books available to the children to choose from as they develop the reading habit. Ruth will explore fiction, non-fiction and poetry (with maybe the odd graphic novel thrown in), from contemporary and highly acclaimed authors. As part of this day, Ruth will also look at how texts should be mapped across a year group and the whole school to ensure that the content, complexity and interest level of books are progressive, supporting learners at all stages of their reading journey.
