Year 6 have completed their first Star Reader test of the year. They have answered questions relating to small extracts of text as they appear on the iPad. As part of the school’s use of Accelerated Reader, the Star Reader tests will help to inform the teachers and children about their reading ability and age. This in turn will help the children to choose a book which holds the appropriate level of challenge enabling the children to make progress as quickly as possible.
As more of our children take the tests, reading books will start to come home. Please ensure your child is reading their reading book everyday and the book comes back into school daily. Once they have finished a book, they need to let their teacher know they have finished and they will be asked to complete a quiz about what they have read.
