On October 1st, Rising Stars were thrilled to sponsor Reading Rocks 2016. A one-day spectacular reading festival for primary school teachers whose aim is to make reading rock for every pupil!
The Rising Stars Reading Planet stand was a real hub of excitement with some exclusive talks by Adam and Charlotte Guillain, authors of the Comet Street Kids series, and a chance to win £1000 worth or reading resources for one lucky school! Adam and Charlotte spoke about the importance of creating exciting characters and interesting storylines to ensure a child will want to start reading for pleasure.
There was lots of excitement over our #ReadingPlanetRocks selfie competition which drew in the crowds for the chance to win £1000 worth of brand new Reading Planet resources! After the event we announced the delighted winner Hannah Critchley a year 6 teacher at St Augustine's CE Primary School! Hannah and her school are thrilled to have won the entire Reading Planet programme to inspire their pupils!
The whole day was filled with great talks and tips to launch a love of reading for every child, and everyone there had a fabulous time! This is the first Reading Rocks conference, but judging by this year’s success, we’re sure it won’t be the last!
