What is Accelerated Reader (AR)?

AR is a computer program that helps teaching staff to manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice and make informed decisions to guide their future learning.

Your child selects a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. Once completed, your child takes a short quiz related to the book on the computer – passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teaching staff instant feed-back, which they then use to help the child set new targets and ongoing reading practice.

At All Saints C of E Primary School Accelerated Reader is used throughout Key Stage 2 (years 3-6)   However, some Year 1 and 2 children will begin to the scheme as we progress through the year.

All children throughout the school will need to have their reading books in school every day alongside their reading record books where they will record their progress and targets. It is essential for the success of the scheme that we have your support on this matter and it will be very much appreciated. If books are lost please let us know as soon as possible.
