We have recently subscribed to a new service, for Key Stage 2 pupils, which will help you to support your child in continuing their reading at home. The scheme is called Accelerated Reader and can be used to:
Helping choose books
Your child has been issued with a zpd or book range. This range will recommend the best books for child’s reading ability. Accelerated Reader’s website http://www.arbookfind.co.uk/ provides an advanced search option to choose books within this range which are of a suitable interest level and genre for your child. These books can then be sourced from the public library or other book providers. Alternatively, you are able to search our school library online to see if we have a suitable book for them. To do this, you need to enter our school’s keycode: DK173601
Monitoring your child’s progress
Once your child has finished a book they can complete an online quiz in school. A score of 80% or above correct indicates that they have read and understood their chosen book.
