Webinar: Developing Reading for Pleasure at Key Stage 3

Watch our webinar from Wednesday 19 June where we explored ways to embed a strong reading for pleasure culture across your school.

Hosted by BookTrust and joined by two of this year's Bookbuzz authors, the webinar looked at why reading by choice has such an impact on students’ future success, summarising the latest research and guidance as well as the factors that can influence independent reading.

A panel of school librarians and English teachers discussed the issues that schools face in creating a reading culture at Key Stage 3, sharing their tips and advice on how they are developing reading for pleasure in their settings.

Authors Fleur Hitchcock and Elle McNicoll discussed how they create compelling stories to engage young readers, and we gave an overview of our Bookbuzz KS3 reading programme.
