  • Excellent, inspiring, lots of practical ideas, some revisited which is great, confirmed many thoughts, challenged others.
  • Many, many thanks for your presentation. Teachers have absolutely loved your informative and affirming session. You gave them many practical ideas that they could use in their classrooms and also challenged their practice in the teaching of spelling. In their words: “A fantastic start to the day. Wendy was dynamic, interesting, practical and clear in her speaking, explaining and demonstrating.”

“We must have the goal of educating children to become real readers, not simply students who answer test questions correctly but leave school with no interesting picking up a book ever again. If we want engaged, active readers and citizens, we must make reading a joyful adventure.” (page 31)
