Book Power of Reading 2016-17 in a region near you

The Power of Reading and Power of Reading in the Early Years from CLPE are proven to raise children's literacy achievement. Established for 12 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 INSET sessions designed by our highly experienced team of teachers to ensure children are engaged by high quality literature
  • 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 150 teaching sequences for EYFS up to KS2, explanations of our teaching approaches and over 1500 examples of good practice 
  • Opportunities to meet leading children's authors and poets such as Chris Haughton (SSHH we have a plan!) and CLiPPA 2016 winner Sarah Crossan (One)
