The Reading Journey

Book now onto our new reading courses 'The Reading Journey'. This is a new course over three afternoons during which we look at the journey that pupils make as they 'learn to read' and then 'read to learn'

As part of the course there will be regular opportunities to see how reading is reflected in classrooms, books and lessons across the three key stages. There will also be the chance to explore ideas for lessons and the practical organisation of reading.

'The Reading Journey' has been split into three sessions to suit teachers, teaching assistants and student teachers working in different key stages.


Session 1 - Monday 3rd June 2019 - Examines pre-reading and early phonics skills

Session 2 - Tuesday 25th June 2019 - Focus on KS1 phonics, comprehension, lesson organisation and early reciprocal reading

Session 3 - Monday 1st July 2019 - Looks in greater detail at reciprocal reading skills, predicting, clarifying, questioning and summarising delivered through both small group settings and whole class                              lessons across key stage 2


The cost of the course is £99 per session per delegate or you can book all three sessions for a reduced cost of £250. To book onto these please email

Each afternoon session will take place at the CPTSA training facility at Colmore Junior School 12.00 - 4.00pm.

Refreshments provided: Tea/Coffee/biscuits
