Embedding Reading for Pleasure

Raise the status of books and reading in your school with Seven Stories. Children who read for pleasure are more likely to achieve at school and in other areas of their life - promoting a culture where books and reading have a high profile will help to narrow the attainment gap for all children.

This programme will introduce Seven Stories’ Transformative Story Time Framework as a way to support Reading for Pleasure activities. Through development of storytelling skills and techniques you will reflect on your own practice, collaborate with others and work towards developing a curious, motivated reading mind set in your school.

This programme will:

  • Provide meaningful and innovative approaches to engage reluctant readers
  • Develop understanding of how Reading for Pleasure creates an environment for children to improve their higher critical thinking
  • Create relevant curriculum links for a whole school Reading for Pleasure approach
  • Raise engagement and attainment in reading through fostering a love of stories
  • Provide high quality children’s literature to support children’s developing knowledge of authors, illustrators and books

You will receive:

  • Transformative Storytime Framework
  • Story sharing planning sheets
  • Hooks into Books packs (optional extra)

Full day from £695 (at your setting) or £895 (at Seven Stories).
