We look forward to welcoming you to our first ‘Early Years Exchange’ event for Early Years practitioners which will kick off a series of Literacy focussed sessions providing the opportunity for FVWL colleagues to share good practice and build a collaborative network.
In this session we will hear from two colleagues on how they have helped develop Literacy outdoors and build a culture promoting reading for enjoyment.
Literacy Outdoors: Reading areas are not all about cosy cushions, ivy and fairy lights. Sometimes they are repurposed tyres, swaying grass and a big dose of fresh air!
Building a Reading Culture: Developing children’s early literacy skills through play-based learning, combining practitioners’ knowledge and understanding with fun-filled family engagement.
Join us either via CPD Manager or by emailing RIC Literacy PT Chiara Sportelli: firstname.lastname@example.org
CLPL webinar on 15th February at 2pm
This session which is aimed at support staff will equip you with skills designed to engage reluctant readers and improve confidence. A structured approach to paired reading will be provided from choosing reading material through to discussing the text after reading.
Sign up via CPD Manager or contact Chiara Sportelli at email@example.com for further details.
The FVWL RIC are very pleased to have been given the opportunity to pilot a Reading Schools initiative with The Scottish Booktrust. Check out #ScotReadingSchools on twitter for more information and to see some of the creative practice going on to develop a reading culture across our region.

Our Reading Culture network met yesterday for the fourth of our professional network events. We took the opportunity to consider the role of storytelling as part of pedagogy, to share progress in our classrooms so far and to consider our next steps.
