Over four sessions we will unpick what high quality book talk looks like with 3-5 year olds and coach you to feel confident using a range of proven strategies for promoting talk. This course is run in collaboration with educational consultant and writer Charlotte Raby.


Meet Charlotte Raby 

For the past three years, Charlotte Raby has been working with groups of teachers across the country to explore the benefits of child-led book talk on children's expressive vocabularies, confidence and attitudes to reading. Teachers and practitioners who have worked with Charlotte on this course have seen a huge change in the children they have worked with. Charlotte has many years experience teaching, researching and training all aspects of early reading. She believes that instilling a love of reading is central to every child's success in becoming a reader for life.
