Accelerated Reading (AR)

Accelerated Reading is a scheme we use once children are reading confidentially and are ‘free readers’.  Children do a Star reading test each term to determined their reading fluency and comprehension on an ipad.  This gives each child a reading range of books they can choose from, ie 2.4-3.2.  They are free to choose from this range and read it at school and at home.  Once they’ve read the book they will take part in a quiz to test their comprehension and earn points towards their target.  The class which has the most children reaching their target each term wins a treat of their choice.

In September year 3 parents are invited to a meeting that explains the scheme in detail so that they feel confident in supporting their child at home.  If you have any problems, please speak to either the teacher or TA.
