Reading is an undoubtedly important life skill for children of all ages! But how do you make sure all children enjoy reading in school and develop a lifelong love of books?
This informative webinar brings together three experts in a discussion of practical strategies and ideas to help you improve reading attitudes at your school.
Section 1: Why are reading attitudes important and how to influence them.
This section is presented by Alison Tarrant, CEO of The School Library Association.
She explores the importance of reading for pleasure, discusses why children's attitudes to reading matter and offers some practical ideas to help you promote reading for pleasure and influence attitudes in your classroom.
Section 2: A practical approach to promoting reading in the classroom.
This section is presented by Gemma Moran, Ex Deputy Head and Wellbeing Lead. Gemma explores how schools can measure reading attitudes, why this is important and how this data can inform classroom practice.

The final section of the webinar is presented by Bob Wilkinson from BounceTogether. Bob explores the importance of data and discusses how our platform can support you in making it really easy and effective to report on reading attitudes and behaviours.
