Reading roadblocks can be a daily problem for school communities.
For many learners, significant roadblocks interrupt the journey to becoming an avid and fluent reader.
The Cornerstone English Hub 2023 Conference will explore the various challenges and hurdles faced by pupils as they embark on their reading journeys and will unpick strategies and approaches to make lasting differences to children and teachers.
Words help us to discover new information and imagine new worlds, they underpin human creativity and provide us with the foundations of rational thought. When we help children to learn new words and to love using them, we unlock the limitless possibilities offered through the wonderful world of reading.
Join like-minded colleagues at the 2023 Cornerstone English Hub Conference and explore these reading roadblocks and learn how to support every child to overcome the hurdles hindering their reading adventures.
Be inspired and reflect on the subject of reading.
FREE to attend for all educators, the Reading Roadblocks event will be of most interest to primary English / Reading Leads or Senior Leaders.
