About this event
In this first of two sessions, we will explore the big ideas of reading fluency and how this sits within the wider picture of reading and literacy development. The links between fluency and comprehension will be explored and an introduction to practical classroom strategies will give attendees tips and ideas to take away and try out before the second session.
