Accelerated Reader

As soon as their phonic knowledge is secure, children move onto Accelerated Reader.  They take a star reading test which matches them to a reading band according to their reading ability.  The children then choose a book from their reading band and read these both at home and at school during independent reading time. After each book the children take a quiz on accelerated reader which checks their understanding of the text.  We have dedicated libraries across school where the children are able to change their books once they have finished them.  Teachers and teaching assistants are always on hand to guide the children in their choices, encouraging them to read a breadth of different genres and texts.
