Understanding children’s reading: at school and at home

Thursday 20 February 2020

We all recognise how crucial reading is for children to do well at school and later on in the workplace. But what does research tell us about why it’s important, what children and young people should be reading, and what happens if they don’t read? And what about children and young people who speak a language other than English at home?

Whether you’re a parent, a teacher, bilingual or not, this public lecture from the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism will have something for you!

Admission free. Booking essential.
