Participants will attend 5 sessions and complete gap tasks in between sessions. Gap tasks will be related to developing participants’ own knowledge of children’s literature, understanding of reading for pleasure pedagogy and developing the reading for pleasure culture in their school. These sessions run 12.30-3pm. Those who commit will be expected to attend all sessions. (This is currently not open to Wave 4 Partner Schools – if this is you then please email
