As children become more skilled, they are given access to Accelerated Reader (AR). Pupils read a book, take an online quiz which focuses on their understanding of the text and provides them with immediate feedback. Parents can opt in to receive emails which keep them informed of their children’s book choices and quiz results. AR gives teachers the information they need to monitor children’s reading practice. It enables them to make informed choices to guide their pupils’ future reading development. Reading is a skill that enables children to expand their knowledge of the world. Through reading and responding to imaginative fiction, poetry, drama and a wide range of non-fiction, children both gain pleasure and develop a competence in written language.
