Accelerated Reader

We have recently launched Accelerated Reader. It encourages children to read more and we are having lots of reading competitions. There are lots of opportunities for children to be rewarded for reading such as: raffle tickets for children regularly reading, a cinema trip for the 12 most raffle ticket winners and Houses competing to pass the most reading comprehension quizzes. The winning House will be rewarded with a film night after school in December. There are weekly updates in assembly on the results of these competitions. We have our first Million Word reader – well done, Kalina – and are approaching 20 million words read as a school.
