27/2/22 We have read 3,533 AR books this year - that's 26,298,259 words!

Accelerated Reader is a computer programme that helps teachers manage, monitor and improve children's independent reading practice.

Your child chooses a book (with support) based on their interests and at his/her own level (this is a very important part of the programme) and reads at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz online - passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read. Accelerated Reader gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help the child set targets and direct ongoing reading practice.

World Book Day 2022

We celebrated the 25th anniversary of WBD by throwing a school party. We enjoyed book themed hunts, games, quizzes, crafts, cake and of course lots of reading!

A highlight of the day was the addition of hundreds of new books to our AR library and the foundation stage class libraries. A huge thank you to the pupils, parents and staff who donated books. We even had to add 3 new bookcases and 25 new baskets!
