Accelerated Reading Begins

11th Sep 2017

On Monday 11th September, pupils from primary 3 to primary seven commenced the accelerated reading programme. This programme will be completed on three occasions throughout the school year and is designed to promote and develop a love of independent reading.

The first period of accelerated reading will run for eight weeks between now and Halloween. During this time pupils will read books at a level of difficulty which is personal to each individual and optimal for reading development. On completion of each book the pupils will complete online quizzes in an effort to gain points towards personal reading targets.

As the first term of accelerated reading will run for eight weeks, pupils should aim to complete 12.5% of their target each week. Parents can monitor progress through an online portal called "home connect". You should receive a letter detailing how to access this portal in the coming days.

More information on the programme can be obtained below or in the parents area of our website.
