Linking to our research about building communities of readers, we’re working with talented teachers to create new resources to support your readers at home.
The pressure on teachers and parents is huge, so we’re keeping things simple, stressing three core ways to foster readers, in alignment with our evidence-informed RfP pedagogy, through:
*Reading aloud * Time to read as a family *Book chat.
So ‘just relax and read’. Time and space to hear stories, read and talk informally about what we’re all reading is key to developing and sustaining a love of reading.
Feel free to share any of these resources with parents, school staff and governors. This is an opportunity to help build stronger family reading cultures, making more of a difference to young people’s life chances. Watch out for our Bookchat videos, modelling book blether and other ideas to support readers coming soon!
