Accelerated Reader

Here at St Mary’s we understand that reading plays an important role in every child’s learning, and so we encourage a love of books from an early age.

Starting in Reception Class, children follow a structured reading scheme until they have grasped a good standard of reading. They are then transferred onto the Accelerated Reader Scheme, which we use to help monitor and develop each child’s reading and comprehension ability.

Children select a book from their reading level, and when they have finished reading the book they take an online quiz about that specific book. This method engages and motivates the children to progress, and we continue to see the positive impact that this is having on reading improvement throughout the school.

Parents are able to use the link below to search for appropriate books that are within their child’s current reading level:
