Accelerated Reader

As we outlined at the Parent Information Evening last month, all children from P3 to P7 are now using Accelerated Reader. This is a programme which allows them to choose books at the correct level, based on an assessment taken on the computer, and then to do quizzes on the books. They receive points for the quizzes and the programme counts the number of words read in each book. This means children can work towards being a word half-millionaire (KS1) or word millionaire (KS2), and they work towards a points target. We are all working hard towards our first points target of the year!
