The event will bring together practitioners and researchers interested in primary school children’s language and literacy development. It will showcase research at Reading in the areas of reading development, EAL and Primary Languages, and offer insights into how research can inform classroom practice for literacy and language teaching. We are delighted to have the highly regarded Professor Victoria Murphy, from Oxford University, delivering a keynote speech focused on both EAL learners and reading development.
