This tool is an essential part of the Get Hounslow Reading project.
Working together with Charlotte Raby, a number of Padlets have been created to support teachers and practitioners. They offer all programme resources, case studies, research and a place to share practice.

These padlets are rich with resources, research and recommendations to support teachers to embed Reading for Pleasure pedagogies in their classrooms.

Contingent Talk with books is all about developing early language and reading with Nursery and Reception pupils. This padlet contains research and resources to support Contingent Talk with the youngest pupils, and films of practitioners at work.

Contingent Talk Padlet

A large part of the programme has been about how children and parents read together for pleasure. These padlets have been created  by Hounslow's teachers who know and understand their parent community's needs.

Early Years & Key Stage 1

Years 3 & 4

Years 5 & 6

Teachers who completed the programme are asked to create a case study to show how Reading for Pleasure has impacted their school.

These have all been collected onto a Padlet.

Our Case Studies

Ambassadors are made up of teachers and practitioners who have completed one year of the programme.

Their role is to continue using the Reading for Pleasure pedagogy and Contingent Talk in their school. They also support colleagues who are new to the programme.

They meet termly to network and share practice. There is a specific Padlet for ambassadors contributions.

Primary Subject Networks – "Meeting other subject leaders and sharing, makes me feel better about what we are delivering and that we are on the right track."

Develop your A level Teaching – "It was really nice to be able to talk to other A level German teachers as there aren’t very many and we could share our experiences."

Contingent Talk with Books – "Such a worthwhile project for Early Years, which you can see working right in front of your eyes. Well-planned and organised project, fantastic expert who inspires us all."

Get Hounslow Reading – "The biggest impact has been on our teachers’ enthusiasm for reading/books and their knowledge of high quality texts, finding innovative ways to engage readers through displays, book talk and story time."

Secondary Subject Networks – "There are so many useful takeaways from the meeting to help improve teaching and learning and they are things which can easily be put into place after the meeting."

Get Hounslow Reading – “There can be no doubt of the enthusiasm of Hounslow teachers and impact of their hard work on growing a Reading for Pleasure practice in their schools over this academic year. Many teachers said that the time to talk and share practice was what they valued most highly.” Charlotte Raby – Programme Facilitator

Secondary Subject Networks – “I really enjoy the content and the supportive group of fellow geography leaders discussing ideas in a non-judgmental, relatively informal way. The group certainly helps each other and fundamentally discusses relevant topics which are benefiting me.”
