The National Literacy Trust has announced the Reading for Life Campaign that builds on the successes of the Year of Reading (NYR). The new campaign will launch during Spring 2009 and will build on the networks and approaches that the NYR has started. The campaign will consist of a public-facing website (http://www.readingforlife.org.uk/ ) featuring literacy initiatives and resources, including Wikireadia, the shared professional resource developed during the NYR.
Reading for Life will particularly target pre-school children and those in their first few years of secondary school (key stage 3), especially boys, black and minority ethnic children, Eastern European children, Pakistani and Bangladeshi children, white working class boys as well as C2DE families, especially young fathers, disabled children, print-impaired readers, looked-after children and adult learners.
This promises to be another exciting and stimulating year for reading - and the opportunity for more schools to partner local organisations and libraries to engage their pupils in reading activities.
