Accelerated Reader

This year we will be using the accelerated reader programme, children will read the book selected for them at the appropriate level once they have read their book they will complete a short comprehension quiz on the story. In order to get a new book and progress within the reading stages children must show a good level of comprehension of the book read to pass the quiz.  Reading is not only decoding words it is also showing an understanding of what has been read.
