We were delighted to post another great range of blogs from guest writers throughout August.
Exmouth Community College kicked things off by sharing their library activities that allow the students to have fun whilst learning to read for pleasure in Lively Libraries. This was followed by a round-up of our reading for pleasure blogs to celebrate Book Lovers Day 2020.
Students can struggle to write if they lack the in-depth subject knowledge they need to fully understand a topic. Assistant headteacher, Chris Youles wrote about the importance of building subject knowledge to enable quality writing.
It's not just writing that students can struggle with. Publisher Barrington Stoke, a mother and daughter-in-law team with a combined expertise in dyslexia and children’s publishing, discuss the work they do to make books more accessible and engage reluctant and struggling readers to unlock a love of reading.
And finally, ahead of what is certain to be the strangest academic year in living memory, Chris Bravery shared some helpful hints, tips and encouragement for NQTs who will be heading into schools and Natalie Cole shared her top wellbeing and self-care tips for teachers returning to work.
We hope you enjoyed our summer blogs and we wish everyone the best for returning to work in September!
