COURSE OVERVIEW

During this one day course Jane Considine will explore how to create an effective whole school reading curriculum for primary schools. Jane will provide guidance on how to foster a ‘we love reading’ ethic alongside regular interactive reading sessions, focusing on ways to teach the mechanics of reading and the magic of the written word.
This course will explore concepts and ideas featured in Jane Considine’s best selling book, Hooked on Books. This includes detailed explanations and examples of Book Talk, a high impact alternative to Guided Reading.
“Over the past two years, our school has fully embedded ‘Book Talk’ into daily practice from Reception to year 6. As a result, progress scores were in the top 5% of all schools nationally for reading in 2017. Our work with Jane Considine has been fundamental in our school’s progress and our children’s outcomes, helping the school’s Ofsted rating go from Inadequate to GOOD in 3 years. Thank you! ”
Mark Richards, Headteacher of St John’s C of E Primary School, Dorking.
