Reading comprehension and literacy skills are the gateways to learning. Nevertheless, 1 in 5 pupils do not develop sufficient reading skills during primary school. During this live session, you will learn how Fiction Express offers teachers a cohesive approach to teaching literacy. Fiction Express is a pupil-centred resource designed to improve all areas of literacy (reading; writing; spelling, punctuation & grammar; and speaking & listening) by getting children excited about reading through the power of a unique, deeply engaging experience of co-creation between pupils and authors while facilitating class preparation for teachers. Fiction Express has been recognised for its innovative teaching and learning approach with numerous awards, amongst them the Bett Award 2020 and 2021.
