Accelerated Reader

In Key Stage 2 we use Accelerated Reader.

Pupils are assessed four times a year and from this assessment their Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) is created.  This gives the children a range.  This range is then used to help guide the children to choose the most appropriate reading book.  Once the children have read their reading book they can then take a quiz.  The more they read, the more points they get.  Each child is given a numerical reading points target that they work hard to achieve.

Parents can sign uip to the Accelerated Reader Home Connect Service which enables them to see what books their child has read and how they have scored on their quizzes.    

At the start of the year, all pupils are sent home with the Home Connect information.  If you would like to know more about this, please contact your class teacher.
