Primary ‘Reading for Pleasure’ project has launched!
HEP is delighted to share news that over 180 teachers across 35 of our primary schools have signed up for Get Hounslow Reading.
The first two workshops for EYs/KS1 and LKS2 took place last week where teachers were introduced to the expectations of the programme which will be run every half term during 2021/22. During the sessions led by Charlotte Raby, teachers signed up for the newsletters and websites that will feature throughout the programme and they were all set a reading challenge to complete over the summer.
The final two introductory workshops will take place next week as follows:
UKS2 Reading for Pleasure (RfP) – Tuesday 15th June, 1:30-3:30pm, via Zoom
Contingent Talk for EYs and Nursery leaders – Thursday 17th June, 1:30-3:30pm, via Zoom
HEP, working in partnership with the Just Imagine Story Centre, will order starter packs for each school participating in the RfP programme, at no cost to schools as this is a Joint Practice Development funded programme. More details will follow in the coming weeks.
HEP is pleased to share a link to the evaluation surveys for Secondary Subject Network members and leads. These surveys have also been emailed to all members and leads by Nina Johal. Feedback is vital to shaping the direction of Subject Networks moving forward. Please encourage your colleagues to complete these by Friday 2nd July.
New initiative helps young people protect themselves
HEP is pleased to share a press release from the Metropolitan Police Service promoting a new initiative tackling Stranger Danger called the ‘Clever Never Goes’ programme as they continue work to keep children across London safe.
Featuring a specially designed robot named Clever, the programme helps children spot dangerous situations and gives them tips about how to respond. It is designed to be positive, practical and playful whilst ensuring the reality of situations is not lost. Clever Never Goes resources are now being rolled out to primary school children aged 5-11.
