Joining Toria this week is Teresa Cremin, Sonia Thompson, Ben Harris and Richard Charlesworth. They’re all passionate advocates for Reading for Pleasure and in this episode you’ll find out why. We’ll explore what exactly Reading for Pleasure means, why it is not an ‘add on’, or evidenced only by means of fun activity days, but should rather be viewed as a core part of the reading curriculum in every school. We talk about what Reading for Pleasure looks like in classrooms and the wider school, and where you can go for recommendations to widen your reading repertoire and develop your own practice.
