Nottingham TRG – Update from Julie Doyle & Amy Greatrex

At our recent meeting, the Nottingham TRG members shared their graphic novel recommendations for all year groups. This led to a reflective discussion about some of our children bringing in their graphic novels from home to read at playtimes, in class and to show their friends. We decided the children are leading us to notice they are interested in this genre and it’s our role to pursue this and provide graphic novels that tempt, and to value this form as a rich reading for pleasure experience. We recognised that these types of texts are inclusive of all learners and great for learner-led and social interactions.
