Power of Reading
This is the fourth Power of Reading training running in 2017-18. The others have sold out. Find out where Power of Reading training is running outside London
The Power of Reading and Power of Reading in the Early Years from CLPE are proven to raise children's literacy achievement. Established for thirteen years, over 4500 teachers have taken part in the projects which enhance teachers’ knowledge of high quality literature and develop their ability to use it creatively in the classroom.
This 4 day course includes:
- 4 full day INSET sessions designed by our highly experienced team of teachers which will directly support literacy practice in the classroom
- Free place for headteacher or senior leader to the morning of INSET 1 and the whole day final conference
- 2 packs of carefully chosen children's books (20 books per teacher) and selected associated teaching resources
- An audit of classroom/school literacy provision and support to develop a whole school approach to reading and writing
- Children's book groups to increase enthusiasm for high quality literature and understanding of how to share this in the classroom
- A subscription to a resource-packed website which hosts over 190 teaching sequences for EYFS to KS2, explanations of our teaching approaches and over 1500 examples of good practice (website access will commence on day one of the training)
- An introduction to CLPE Reading and Writing scales have been introduced to help teachers strengthen formative assessment, understand a child’s journey to becoming literate and support progress for every child
- Opportunities to meet leading children's authors and poets including Chris Haughton (SSHH we have a plan!) and CLiPPA 2016 winner Sarah Crossan (One)
The Power of Reading is fully aligned to and meets all requirements of the National Curriculum 2014.
