Had a good meeting at the National Literacy Trust today.
Jim Sells wants me and Diane Baker (extraordinary teacher from Basildon) to work up a toolkit for Premier League Reading Stars in schools.
We talked it through over spag bol, courtesy of the Premier League.
The plan is to devise ten sessions that can be used in schools to encourage football-loving children who aren't so into books. The best bit is that, working with Diane, I'll learn about what will and won't work in school settings.
We've got six weeks to do it. We'll use some of the ideas that worked so well for PLRS in libraries and some of the ideas Diane and I have used in her school.
If you have any ideas, please do get in touch.
