The Updated DfE Reading Framework has been talked about a lot over the summer, Elizabeth and Cathi even wrote a blog about it so this week we are turning things around a bit, Ruth Maloney interviewed Elizabeth Hutchinson, trainer and advisor for school libraries and Cathi Woods, School librarian. We were also delighted to welcome back to our podcast English and History teacher, literacy coordinator and school library advocate, Alice Visser-Furay.
When we started reading the framework it wasn’t immediately obvious that this was a document for school librarians this meant it was an important discussion for the new school year. We hope you enjoy it.
