We use “Accelerated Reader” school to support children in developing as readers. This is a web-based system that enables children to identify books that give them an appropriate level of challenge after they have extended beyond our banded book system (usually as they are entering Key Stage 2).
Children read at home as normal but on completing each book they complete a short quiz back in school which demonstrates their understanding of the book. Every now and again they will take an online comprehension test in school which, added to their ongoing quizzing, can change the level of book they are encouraged to read.
You can view what your child has been reading and how well they have been doing by following this link which will take you to our school’s “Home Connect” login page for Accelerated Reader. Your class teachers will have sent home the username and password – if you need this again, please let us know.
During the Coronavirus outbreak we have enabled Accelerated Reader quizzing to be able to take place at home. The link for the quizzes is here. Please note that this is different from the Home Connect link above which will not allow you to quiz. If you need your username or password for quizzing, please ask your child’s class teacher via Google Classroom.
For more information on how Accelerated Reader works in general please read the GF Introductory Guide October 2018. If you have any questions, please do ask us.
