Phonics & Reading

Image result for accelerated reader

Coming soon.......

Dear Parents
This year our pupils in years 1 to 6 will be using Accelerated Reader as their main reading focus. Accelerated Reader gives teachers the information they need to monitor pupils’ reading practice and make informed decisions to guide their future learning.
Accelerated reading ensures that pupils are reading the correct books for their reading age. Once they have completed the book the children undertake a quiz related to the book and receive instant feedback. Teachers use Accelerated Reader to help monitor independent reading practice and assign close reading skills practice. They receive data that tells them how reading skills are improving.
If you would like further information related to Accelerated Reader, please see the Parent’s Guide on our Website or click on the link below. Alternatively, please discuss with your Childs class teacher
