Change log
Miles, Chloe 

This proposed case study looks to explore how pupils view Reading for Pleasure in year 5 and 6 and how this may influence future pedagogical practice of teachers in their classrooms, with regards to the promotion of Reading for Pleasure. It considers, in an extended literature review, how Reading for Pleasure links to attainment improvement not only in reading but across the curriculum, as well as its impact on socio-emotional development. The proposal outlines how this could be investigated further to explore pupils’ perspectives using a mixed-methods approach and highlights the benefits of collecting both quantitative and qualitative data. Finally, it concludes with consideration of the implications for future practice that have resulted from reviewing the literature, particularly the importance of promotion of Reading for Pleasure as an activity in its own right.
