What started out as a reading blog with my first-born son (www.fatherreading.wordpress.com) and a desire to improve the profile and teaching of reading in the primary classroom has now become FREDsTeaching!

On this website you will find a huge range of reading resources created by teachers who are working in classrooms around the world, led by FRED who began this style of teaching reading using extracts when researching the best approaches to teaching reading as part of an NPQSL project.

The resources will save you bags of time, improve you reading lessons immediately and lead to outstanding progress for all pupils. I am passionate about inclusion for all children in quality first teaching and would advise that all children participate in your reading lessons, with scaffolding to support this. WCR lessons include regular EXT challenges to push your more able pupils and comprehensions are often written using the same stimulus for KS1, LKS2 and UKS2 to support differentiation.

If you have any questions about using our resources, please just ask!

On this website, you will find a range of resources and ideas to inspire a love of reading and develop your own teaching of reading.

I also deliver reading CPD and have now visited schools around the country and led CPD in front of thousands of teachers from around the world using Zoom!

You can also contact me to discuss your CPD needs and book bespoke, individual or whole-school training which has received fantastic feedback from participants across the country. Some of the feedback we have received can be read below. If you would like to hear from more past participants, have a look at the reviews on our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/FREDsTeaching/Reviews
