ALL subjects promote reading. Just some do it more explicitly. Our challenge is to make it explicit across the curriculum. We got this!! 💪 upcoming CPD on direct vocabulary instruction and reciprocal reader will be gamechangers for us!

‘I had so much I wanted to write and I really enjoyed the documentary so I made an A3 poster’ I think that is my favourite quote of Reading Week so far. Reading around the curriculum really does inspire our students! https://t.co/hUKGwuHaGt
