Meet Eric! He should have arrived in your classrooms and will continue to appear whenever you are reading. Eric stands for “Everyone is reading in class” and his role is to promote all the reading you encounter across school. Hopefully you’ll be able to recognise that reading happens in every subject (not just English) and that the more you develop your reading skills (and your reading age), the more you’ll understand in every subject. We hope that the more you understand, the more you’ll enjoy each subject. And we’re convinced that the more you enjoy the subject, the more successful you will be. We’d love to celebrate your achievements, so if you’ve got any examples of how reading has helped you in your lessons then let us know!
