Encouraging the Love of Reading - Reading for Pleasure

'Reading for pleasure is the single most important indicator of a child's future success.' OECD 2002

Reading for pleasure is surely the entitlement of every child and yet how can we foster a childs' desire and engagement?

It had become apparent that despite many reading interventions and a focus on reading comprehension in school, most children were not enjoying reading.

Based on research from the Open University working with 25 schools, a range of activities were created that would support teachers and parents to develop and nurture a love for reading in their children and many of these were implemented in school.

The significant benefits of devloping a reading for pleasure culture are:

*increased attainment in English and maths                                                         *improved general knowledge                                                                                 *richer vocabulary                                                                                                 *supports exploration of identity                                                                           *encourages imagination, empathy and mindfulness of others
