Oxford Reading Spree is a brand new event happening in Oxford on April 1st 2017. We aim to celebrate everything that’s best in reading in schools bringing together teachers, leaders, authors and experts in a spirit of fun and passion.
The day will have a mix of keynotes, workshops and free flow sessions giving you the chance to hear from inspiring speakers, work together to explore ideas and mingle to meet new people and make new contacts.
Oxford Reading Spree will take place at Larkrise Primary School in East Oxford. Larkrise is a large primary school with 450 pupils on role situated in an area of huge social diversity. The school follows a storytelling curriculum inspired by Pie Corbett and the Storytelling Schools movement – though with some unique Larkrise twists.
With so many people converging on Oxford for this event, it would be a shame to let the fun stop when the day ends. There’s sure to be a meet up in the pub after the event and there will be a guided Kid’s Lit walk of Oxford’s city centre on sunday morning so if you’re a fan of Alice in Wonderland, His Dark Materials, Lord of the Rings, Narnia or even Harry Potter you’ll want to stay over and hear about their links to the City of Oxford. There are many places to stay at a wide range of budgets, this website might be a good place to start looking.
