Accelerated Reader

In school, children regularly take 'book quizzes' on an i-pad, after they have finished their reading book. This analyses their understanding of the texts they have read, and children receive certificates and rewards for books read and quizzes passed.


The children really look forward to taking these book quizzes, which also supports a love of reading and provides another great incentive for children to read regularly both in school and at home!


The results of the book quizzes provide teachers with a wealth of information about children's reading ability, attainment and progress, which builds into their ongoing assessment of children's reading.


This is further enhanced by children taking half termly 'Star Reader' comprehension tests, which provides a further source of information which teachers can draw on to gain a clear overall picture of children's progress and skills in reading comprehension.
