OU/UKLA Reading for Pleasure Conference

OU Reading for Pleasure Conference in association with UKLA. This conference will help you enrich your repertoire of children’s texts and create reading communities that connect and support young readers.

POSTPONED EVENT

Reading for pleasure is a social justice issue. International evidence indicates it offers cognitive, social and emotional benefits, helping children make connections with each other, their teachers, families and the wider world. This conference will help you enrich your repertoire of children’s texts and create reading communities that connect and support young readers. The Egmont RfP Awards, Frank Cottrell Boyce and Norfolk Children’s Book Centre bookshop will enrich the day! Workshops led by OU/UKLA Teachers’ Reading Group members will share evidence-informed practice.
